MC571 The Film Review (2 credits)
We will watch a number of films from different genres (drama, comedy, the thriller, science-fiction)—Sidney Lumet’s The Verdict, Woody Allen’s Annie Hall, or Akira Kurosawa’s Ran, and write several film reviews on these and other films of interest. We will examine a series of film reviews by the most accomplished reviewers in the business, such as A. O. Scott, David Denby, and Richard Corliss, and we will break the film review down into its component parts to fully assimilate its whole. Finally, we will write a variety of film review types, including the technically highlighted critique, the thematic critique, the negative review, and the socially relevant critique.
