Appreciation of film is more than just “going to the movies,” and critical appraisal can deepen that appreciation, increasing the enjoyment and understanding of a film. This course will explore the medium of film, sampling its broad history from its earliest days as an emerging technology and novel form of entertainment to the artists and trends that emerged in the postwar era, whose influence is still felt today. Each week we
will screen a seminal work and follow it with a lively discussion of the filmmakers,the film’s technical merits, and its significance relative to the larger cultural
moment in which it was created. Among the filmmakers explored are the Georges Méliès, Charles Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean-Luc Godard, Akira
Kurosawa, and Jim Jarmusch.
