Reading Film

ENGL 092.401
instructor(s):
TR 3-4:30 Screening T 5-7:30

On Thursday, March 22, 2001 English 092.401 will need to meet in Moore 23 instead of the regular assigned classroom (LRSM Aud). I've tried to avoid this but........I sincerely regret this inconvenience to the class.

This course will instruct students in the basics of film form and film language. Each week we will examine one genre. Among the genres we will explore are science fiction, horror, the western, the musical and the documentary. Films may include "Metropolis," "Beauty and the Beast" (Cocteau and Disney's) "Raging Bull" and "High Noon." Full features will be screened weekly at obligatory evening screenings. Readings will include texts on film language, forms, critical approaches and genre.
