Course Details

This course will introduce a menu of landmark international movies and generate intelligent critical analysis. By discussing several movies each week from various perspectives students will develop an English language structure to broaden their appreciation of cinema in general. They will develop their personal taste and enhanced excitement for movies they prefer, ultimately heightening their pleasure from this integrative art medium. Students will also begin to see how movies are conceived, constructed, and how they enrich the lives of their audiences. Prior interest in cinema and willingness to participate in critical discussion is the only requirement.
