CIN 252W - Film Analysis
3 credit(s) Writing Intensive
Close study of the formalism of Eisenstein, the realism of Bazin, the auteur theory, and semiotics. Film analysis asks whether a movie is more like a painting, a window on the world, or a mirror for the desires of the audience; it asks whether there is a language of film, whether seeing a film is like dreaming, and what makes for the impression of reality in the cinema. Weekly screenings.
Prerequisite(s): CIN 150 or CMM 150 .
