The Film Essay On this assignment you will write an essay of 5 typed pages in length, dealing with the subject of the film.  There are several approaches to this paper.  You need to pick one of the following:  1)  Write an updated review of a film from the list.  The thesis will give your judgment of the film.  Discuss in the body the director and direction, the actors and acting, and the themes (or messages) in the film.  You will need to quote from at least four sources and also list the film on the work cited page (one of the sources must be an original review—one that came out the year of the film).  THIS IS NOT A PLOT SUMMARY. Use the plot to illustrate a point you are making.  2)  Write on an actor’s persona.  Watch three or more films starring a certain individual and define his/her persona.  3) Write on a director.  Watch three or more films by a director and discuss his use of certain themes, techniques, and types of actors.  4)  Write on a genre (or type of film…like “westerns”).  Watch three or more films in a genre and discuss the formula, theme, and character types involved.
