354:316 American Cinema II

01 MW6 CAC 70265 BELTON MI-100

W 7,8 FILM SCREENING MI-100

A survey of American cinema from the mid 1940s to the present. Designed as a history of American cinema, this course will focus on the way in which the movies express the conflicting forces which shape American experience and identity. Some attention will be paid to the institutional aspects of the film industry, such as the studio system, the star system, and the "system" of genres. But the chief focus of the course will be upon the study of individual films and the way in which they represent or deal with larger cultural concerns.

We will screen films directed by Frank Capra, Nicholas Ray, John Ford, Arthur Penn, Terence Malick, Steven Spielberg, Brian De Palma, Martin Scorsese, David Fincher, and others.

Requirements: two 5-8 page papers and a final exam
