ENGL233 - Film Analysis

We study some of the most beautiful and powerful American films made to date. Students watch and analyze films, and learn to look deeper into the ways in which film techniques work together to create the layers of meaning that contribute to film's power as a medium. This course primarily surveys films from the American Film Institute's top 100 lists. ENGL 233 fulfills the SUNY General Education requirement in Humanities. Prerequisites: RDNG 116 if required by placement testing; prior completion or concurrent enrollment in ENGL 101. 3 Cr. (3 Lec.) Fall and spring semesters.
