Film Appreciation

 

You’ve watched Citizen Kane, the most highly acclaimed film of all time, and you’ve learned something about the tools directors have at their disposal to create an artistic expression in film. Using what you have learned, watch a film of your choice by yourself or with a partner (get the film approved by me first). The film should represent a serious artistic effort on the part of the director.

 

Then review the film scene-by-scene and write up your analysis in the format provided in the sample critique. You will write a thesis statement which will identify at least two prominent tools the director uses in order to accentuate the theme of the film. The thesis must also identify that theme.

 

Number the scenes and put their “titles” in bold font. Then identify the Dominant Aspects of the scene in the next line. Finally, write an analysis of the scene describing both the dominant aspects and what effect(s) they create.

 

The American Film Institute’s list of the All-Time Top 100 Films has been given to you for suggested titles, although you are not confined to this list.
