Tuesday at the Movies

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Who done it? This study group will explore the genre of movies known as crime, thriller, or mystery. We will determine how the directing, editing, and cinematography often determines how successful a movie is at leaving us on the edge of our seats, waiting for the surprise ending. Studying the techniques directors use to keep the anxiety level high will allow us to uncover the often complex plots that made a movie so highly rated by movie critics. We will view: L.A. Confidential (Curtis Hanson, 1997); The Maltese Falcon (John Huston, 1941); Chinatown (Roman Polanski, 1974); Knives Out (Rian Johnson, 2019); Psycho (Alfred Hitchcock, 1960); The Fugitive (Andrew Davis, 1993); In the Heat of the Night (Norman Jewison, 1967); The French Connection (William Friedkin, 1971); Fargo (Joel Coen, 1996); Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000); The Departed (Martin Scorsese, 2006); Mystic River (Clint Eastwood, 2003); Gone Girl (David Fincher, 2014); The Usual Suspects (Bryan Singer, 1995). We will watch each week's movie in advance of the class. Members must obtain access to the movies on their own, which can usually be found through the public library or by streaming. Each movie is presented by one group member who will volunteer to lead the discussion.
