Film Reports.
The film report is to focus on themes, and is not a film review. You can watch the film here: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XMTU4NjAzNTIw.html
There are several ways in which you can craft a film report. In this course, the emphasis is on your writing a report that demonstrates clear familiarity with the film; and that you have reflected on some of the themes or issues relating to samurai and warfare. Please remember that the class is not one on film or film history; and that the film report is NOT a film review that deals with directors, cinema technique, and suchlike. If it reads like a film review rather than something written for this course, then you may easily achieve an “F” grade.
The report could emphasize a particular theme that comes through in the film, or even a couple of themes. You could also reflect upon the film and discuss issues that occurred to you. We will address some possibilities in class.
The least desirable film report, which being such is not to be submitted (and if so might well earn a grade of “F”) is one that provides a synopsis of the film – after all, we’ve all seen it.
Feel free to inform your report with ideas and general information that you may have encountered in the readings, although this is not required in order to write a successful report.
