Cinematic Review

Cinematic Review



The ability to critically think and reason has never been more important than in our information, media-saturated age. While knowledge is important, it changes at an ever-increasing rate and we need the skills to evaluate new information and perceptions. This cross curricular class will use movies as the subject matter for our analysis and skill building both for their literary value and also incorporate critical thinking. The movies will be watched independently outside of class and should be available via library or rental. While written short answer will be required for each movie (to facilitate our time together), the bulk of class time will be discussion. We will be examining literary elements, context, world-view, as well as artistic qualities to study these classics of literature in picture form. Prerequisites: None
