To craft your Film Response, you should consider how the reading, the film, and the class material relate to each other. For example, if we’re watching a film made during the 1970s era known as “New Hollywood,” your response should consider how the film we’ve screened fits into this mode of filmmaking. The assigned reading may provide some clues but you should focus on any immediate impressions that the film made on you and whether those impressions correspond the “New Hollywood” mode of filmmaking. In other words, connect the film, the reading, and course material together in a way that makes sense to you. You should also locate, on your own, other scholarly research material to help you craft your response.
Please remember that each response must include three parts:
- Your response, in about 150-200 words.
- A properly formatted list of all works cited, including films and research material you have found.
- In addition to your citations, you should also include permalinks (or permanent links or persistent links) to the research material you’ve found.
