Choose one film from the list provided (also posted on Blackboard). Most of them may be rented from the various video stores, Netflix, or some other video source. View the film and write a film review on your chosen film. The review should be at least two pages in length, double-spaced, computer generated, and proof-read for spelling and grammar. The review should not simply re-tell the plot; rather it should address the issues and ideas in the film and your response to those ideas and issues. Does the film inform you; disturb you; inspire you; provide a new perspective; increase your empathy; provoke new questions? Consider historical context, social issues, and cultural context in your assessment of the film.

You are encouraged to view many of the films if you have time. Extra credit reviews are accepted.
