I mentioned in class that I would be posting an extra-credit assignment. It will be worth one point on your final grade for the course, so that if your final grade adds up to, say, 89 B+, that extra point will magically transform your grade to 90 A-.
The assignment is to view a film in current theatrical release, or a recent film that has come out on DVD during the past year, and write a paragraph of 3-5 sentences in which you discuss the film in the context of the course (that is, in terms of the formal film elements, and the concepts we’ve discussed in the second half of the course, such as ideology, social context, auteurism, etc.).
You have until Monday, December 23 (at midnight) to send me your extra-credit assignment. (Send it to me by email or ELMS message).
