Part 1: View a feature film made between 1970 – 2000 you have not seen before (or will see later in this class) by a great director or featuring a great actor or actress.
Just as you did in the first paper, comment on the specific film you saw. Pay particular attention to the screenplay, camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (this can include the music). You may also address special effects. Again, as you did in the first paper, talk about what you like, and what you dislike, about what you saw? Whydo you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Is the film a good film, or is it not?
Part 2: Now that you have commented on the specific film you viewed, see if you can draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors oractresses. Be sure to comment on the overall impression you had of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period. Remember, this is not a researchpaper. I am interested in what you have to say, not in what you can learn by reading up on the film or the filmmaker.
Part 3: Go back to the “My Criteria for Quality in Film” page. Based on your viewing of this week’s film, add Five new general conclusions. These statements should be numbered (6)through (10). Be sure to include entire page, including all of your previous criteria statements.
Watch a movie made between 1970 – 1980 that you have not already seen for this class and answer the following questions.
Describe at least three special effects, camera tricks, stunts or camera angles that caught your attention. Why do you think they were important to the story.
How does sound play a part in the film you watched? Identify at least three places that sound stood out in the film.
How does color play a part in the film you watched for this week? Identify at least three places that color stood out in the film.
Respond to at least two of your classmates.
