Topic: History of Film : Every week movie and book report


In a 12-point font with no more than two lines of heading – per week. This is the equivalent of a short paper each week, in which you respond to one or more aspects of that week’s course material: the reading, the film. Of these, the reading is most important – refer to it specifically as often as possible. Each week just one page.
