Throughout this course, you have written essays and participated in discussion forums in an effort
to analyze various elements of film, using different theoretical lenses. This Final Film Analysis is
your opportunity to combine those elements into a comprehensive analysis of one movie.

Please choose a film from this list of approved choices.

Note: You should watch your chosen film twice—once to ensure that you have grasped the
storytelling and once to take more specific notes on aspects of the film you wish to discuss. If you
would like to write about a film that is not on this list, you must email your professor for approval in
advance or you may not receive credit on this assignment.

Your paper should be organized around a thesis statement that clarifies what you will attempt to
accomplish in your paper, and how you will proceed. Review the Final Film Critique sample,
which provides an example of a well-developed analysis as well as insight on composition.

e Briefly summarize the film in which you apply your knowledge of the difference between the
film’s story and its plot.

e Describe one of the broad theories you have learned about in class (auteur theory, genre
theory, formalist theory) and analyze your selected film through that lens.

e Evaluate the use of three specific techniques and design elements employed in the film as they
contribute to the overarching narrative and theme of the film. This can include elements of
mise-en-scéne (e.g., lighting, sound, composition of frame, costuming, etc.) and editing (e.g.,
cuts and transitions, shots used, angles, etc.).

« Describe the connection between this film and society (i.e., politically or culturally, positive or
negative) and draw conclusions about its impact.
