ENG 225 WEEK 5 FILM CRITIQUE FINAL PAPER

Focus of the Final Film Critique

Throughout this course, you have been compiling a blog and writing essays that analyze various elements of film such as theme, cinematic techniques, and genre. It is now time to combine those elements into a comprehensive analysis of one movie.

You will be completing this assignment in two stages: for the first stage (1500 to 1800 words), you will analyze an entire movie; in the second stage (300 to 600 words), you will reflect on how you analyzed the movie as well as how your ability to analyze film in general has evolved.

You are encouraged to incorporate writing from your Week Two Assignment and your Week Three Assignment if (a) you have reflected on the instructor’s feedback, (b) you have revised the relevant parts of the essays accordingly, and (c) the essays discuss the same film that you discuss here.

Stage 1: Analysis

For this stage, you will be analyzing a movie selected from the AFI’s 10 Top 10 list. The film you choose can be one that you have previously analyzed in this course. The analysis portion of your paper should be 1500 to 1800 words in length. You should analyze the film through the lens of one of the broad theories you have learned about in class (auteur theory, genre theory, formalist theory). Your analysis must address four main areas (contextual information, story / plot, aesthetic

choices, and social/personal impact) and how these areas work together to develop the theme of the movie. As you

construct your analysis, assume that your reader is not familiar with this film. Use your analysis to explain why your reader why they should watch this film.

In addition to the film you are analyzing, you must use three scholarly sources to support your arguments. List these sources on your references page and provide in-text citations for quoted, paraphrased, or summarized content in the body of your paper. Cite your sources according to APA style as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Your analysis must address these four components:
