Reading the Movies - NOT OFFERED THIS YEAR
Welcome to Reading the Movies! This elective is designed to sharpen your viewing and critical thinking skills. The course will examine film chronology, genre and directorial style along with some film terminology. Students will view approximately 20+ films and will be required to write film critiques that compare and contrast film styles and genres, review and critique character portrayal and performances, as well as demonstrate in class “live” critiques. Historically class has attended theatrical field trips.
We will study different genres of film and discover what makes each genre unique. This class will be highly driven by discussion, so participation is essential. I want to hear your opinions about these movies and why they are or they are not worthy films.
