Let's Talk Movies and Film Critics

ID : 606   
« back to classes page

This cinephile’s confection will include the ever popular, Let’s Talk About the Movies, a bi-weekly analysis of a feature film, together with a beginning study of film criticism. Every other week, study group members will be assigned a new release movie to see at a local theater. We will then get together for an in-depth analysis of the movie and its cinematic elements. These analyses will alternate with a study of film criticism, including its history and comparisons of film reviews written by several renowned critics. What attributes make a good critic? What does a good review include? Our studies will include comparisons of writing style, insights provided, what the reader can take away from the essay, biases and more. Our text will be: The Complete History of American Film Criticism by Jerry Roberts (Santa Monica Press, 2010). Other readings and materials will be provided weekly by the coordinators, solely on the Canvas site (no paper distribution).
Note: This is a 12-week study group, beginning March 21.
