Cyberpunk Film class term paper
You are required to write a 10 pages essay (About 2500 words). Essay should engage the issues discussed during the term in relation to a film (or films, ( but no more than 3 films)) analyzed in class. (The issues and film list see blow.)
Essay should be more analytical than evaluative, which means it would be a film analysis not film review.
Be conversant with the required readings for a given film and include a bibliography of works cited. ( I will upload a file of readings as attachment. )
In addition to considering the issues raised, include in your analysis consideration of mise-en-scene, cinematography, editing, and sound design.
You can do a frame grabs in your essay if it is necessary (see the instructions for how to do frame grabs on a Mac or PC below).
