Film Paper Directions
First of all, your paper needs to incorporate: times news roman, 12 point font, double spacing and standard margins. *Enjoy the film! I did not do this to punish you! Your film review needs to be 1.5 to 2 pages. Please note, this is a film review, not a film report. Moreover, the paper includes a synopsis of the film rather than a detailed summary. In other words, enjoy the film and concentrate on the big picture.
You will need to include the following: name of the film, prominent stars of the film, basic setting(time and place), and type of film ( comedy, adventure, drama, etc. )
You will need to write a plot summary for the movie. Do not reveal the ending. Discuss at least five events and be sure to cover the entire scope of the film, except the very end
Discuss at least one aspect of filmmaking. You may choose from acting (please note Street Fight-AKA “Cory Booker before he was Mayor”- is a documentary and does not incorporate acting), direction, editing, costume, set design, photography, background music, or anything else you may think of within reason. Be sure that you are specific and cite examples from the movie.
Paragraph 4: Give your overall reaction to the film as well as your opinion on the quality of the film. You have the option of adding the fifth paragraph.
*These directions were largely derived from a film review document posted by Austin Peay University in Tennessee.
