Choose a movie from the provided list. It may be wise to watch the film more than once, one time for content (story), and then again when one can be free of the story and really look into the form.
Look for symbolism, special effects, formal qualities, tendencies, and use of music. How does the cinematographer change from one scene to another - quick cut, fade, wipe, etc.? (See list provided). How does the use of these techniques contribute to the effect and content of the film?
This will be a concise two-page paper, double-spaced, that devotes a short paragraph to content and the remainder to formal issues. This should be ample space to do this effectively. Most reviews in the newspaper are shorter than this, but are mainly about content.
It may be more fun and challenging to choose a movie that you have not seen previously. All of these are very good films in one way or another. Look, See, Think.
