Nalytical review of a The movie scarface

Each essay must be at least 1,250 words. Your essays must include an analysis of the film, which is a discussion of its characteristic components--yet more than a plot summary. In fact, plot summaries should be kept to a minimum (brief plot summaries or references are acceptable in support of an
interpretive point). The essays are not research projects and you are expected to contribute an original essay on a film of your choosing

Each essay requires you to discuss five terms/concepts from the textbook. In your essays, boldface or underline the terms/concepts.
Your essays must include a thesis statement or a purpose for your analysis of the film, which is a discussion of its characteristic components--yet more than a plot summary. Your essays must be a complete draft of 1,250 words.
Your subject matter can be wide ranging, including (but not limited to nor necessarily requiring) the following issues: 1) Themes,cultural assumptions, and perspectives; 2) Comparisons (brief) with/references to other films by the same director and/or actor; 3)
Examination of acting performances related to cultural perspectives; 4) Analysis of technical elements, which may include lighting(and shadows), camera angles and foci, acting, dialogue, sound, special effects, and so forth.

The second part of your essay, the evaluative component, asks you to make an articulate judgment (or series of judgments about the
film). In other words, you should indicate whether the film lives up to its potential (or fails to do so). You should have some clear
criteria of evaluation in making your overall judgment (your descriptive criteria will provide you with supporting material here). One
critical component in evaluation is effect. What effect(s) does the film have on you and how or why? Are these effects appropriate to
the genre? Does the film introduce effects that are relatively innovative and new for you? (Your essay is NOT a research project.)
How does this film compare with other films of the same genre with which you are familiar?
Your essays should express in clear language the fundamental elements of the film, followed by your concrete judgment as to whether
it is a good film, a poor film, or something in between. Do not leave your reader in doubt as to your overall judgment about the
success or failure of the film. Sample student essays will be posted on Blackboard. Some helpful reminders for your essays:
i ” i You must choose a film to write about from the approved list on BB. Each essay must be a on a different film.
i ” i Film titles are always italicized / Give your essay a title / Double-space your essays and use a 12 point font.
i ” i Be sure to identify and discuss/apply at least five terms/concepts from Looking at Movies. Boldface the terms/concepts from the
textbook in your essays (use only terms from the list of approved terms for your analysis).
