Film Analysis Paper

Assignment: Film Analysis Paper – Due Friday, October 15, 2021

 

Assignment Description: A film analysis is not a review or summary of the plot; it should go deeper into analysis and reaction. It should discuss the issues raised by the film, address the film’s importance and purpose, state reactions to the content and quality of the film, and connect it to ideas and material presented in class. It should be a minimum of 4 pages and include the following (in any order you choose).

 

The selected film should be viewed in its entirety. The analysis paper should outline and summarize the student’s sense about why this film is especially relevant to our class, what the relevant meanings and insights to be gained from it may be, how it advances some of the perspectives we have considered thus far; and how it applies to the student’s personal experience and leadership view.

 

Procedure:

Select from one of these films listed below and write a film analysis paper:

“We Were Soldiers” (2002)

“The Hunger Games” (2012) (the first one)

 

The paper is to be thoughtfully assessed with relevance to the readings and ideas discussed in class in regards to leadership.

 

  • Briefly describe the film in general terms: What subjects does it cover? Describe the plot and setting. What issues does it raise? What do you see as the main purpose of the film? What are the major theme(s) of the film?
  • Describe the observed leadership process as it relates the film to class discussions, readings, notes or knowledge. Does it contradict or support anything you have learned? This is the main focus of the paper.

Requirements:

  • All papers must have a title page, be typed using APA style
  • All papers must contain information detailed in the procedure section of these guidelines.
  • Minimum of 4 pages – include additional references (at least three)
