You will be required to submit an essay on the film that we watched at the last lecture.
The essays must be submitted before Tuesday noon, a late review will result in lower grades — but only one day of being late will be allowed, the essays are not accepted afterward.
Other general requirements (from the syllabus) :
These essays will be graded according to the following criteria:
1) insightfulness of thesis,
2) clarity and eloquence of expression,
3) spelling and grammar.
Please proofread your reviews before turning them in. ANY spelling or grammatical errors will result in a lower grade.
General tip: try to develop your thesis statement as clearly and strongly as possible. Do not retell the film — look at it from a critical perspective (this doesn’t mean that you have to focus on what you see as its shortcomings, you may and should also stress its positive qualities).
