The cinematic experience. As we consider everything we’ve discussed and studied through this course (the readings from Looking at Movies and the Module materials) and film screenings, let us explore the various elements that make up a film and the cinematic experience. Select a film of your choosing and identify what the film is saying and how the film is saying it.
Identify one or more of the cinematic elements we’ve covered in class (mise-en-scene, cinematography, acting, sound, editing, and so on) and communicate how these elements contribute to your understanding of the film’s narrative.
as well as genre elements, as you explore the film’s intended political, cultural, and/or idealogical meanings and the tools the filmmaker uses to convey these ideas?
Build upon everything we have covered in this course and craft a substantive genre analysis essay with a solid introduction and thesis statement that showcases your point-of-view, compelling body paragraphs that support your overall thesis, and an effective conclusion.
Don’t summarize the plot of the movie – spend your time focusing on the genre elements of the film and your viewing experience.
