RCNJ World Cinema Movements 1960 Breathless French Drama Discussion

Can you help me understand this Film question?


– 1 paragraph analyzing anything you find noteworthy about the weekly screening (full-length film). If you wish to write additional analysis to include one or more of the weekly clips, that’s great.

screening: Breathless (Links to an external site.) (1960, Jean-Luc Godard)

clips: Jules and Jim (Links to an external site.) – 1962

The Good Dinosaur (Links to an external site.) – 2015

– 1 paragraph with analysis of the week’s readings – for example, you could elaborate on a concept you found interesting or argue against a concept in the readings.

Reading: Film Art: Bordwell/Thompson Chap. 10 and pg. 418 – 422 (analysis of Breathless)

– Do not summarize the lecture content, the readings, or the films’ plots. Write about things you can analyze. For example: you could write about how a film uses a visual storytelling device like subjective camera or editing. If you are ever struggling for an idea, begin with the leading questions on the worksheet. Avoid writing reviews; that is a whole other style of writing.
