There is a reason why films such as Casablanca and The Godfather stand the test of time. This tightly constructed course examines 10 films that define cinema greatness. Each week, via lecture and clips, two films will be examined, leading to thought-provoking discussions of their history, genre, themes and artistry. Screenings are not mandatory, but students are encouraged to watch the films before class.
Films to be screened in advance of each class:
Week 1: Casablanca & Annie Hall
Week 2: His Girl Friday & Some Like It Hot
Week 3: Double Indemnity & Sunset Boulevard
Week 4: Notorious & Rear Window
Week 5: The Godfather & Citizen Kane
