Movie Essay Club


How might we analyze the history of film and express our findings in essay format?

The movie industry as we know it today originated in the early 19th century, through a series of technological developments: the creation of photography, the discovery of the illusion of motion by combining individual still images, and the study of human and animal locomotion.

Since then, the industry has seen extraordinary transformations, some driven by the artistic vision of participants, some by commercial necessity, and still others by accident. The history of the cinema is complex, and for every important innovator and movement listed here, others have been left out.

***We will be watching movies in class.  If you are not able to do this, please do not choose this class***

Types of movies we will watch:
The Gold Rush (1925) - Charlie Chaplin once said that The Gold Rush was the film he wanted to be remembered for.
Duck Soup (1933) - Widely considered the bet Marx Brothers movie
Harold and Maude (1971) -
Some Like it Hot (1959) -
