Blog Prompt #9 (April 12, before class)

Let’s try this again. Use this blog post to suggest a film for one of the TBA dates on the schedule. Your post must include specific frames, shots, and scenes from the film and a justification for how those examples reflect principles discussed in class (mise en scene, camera angle, composition, light/dark, etc.).

(I should let you know that I am leaning toward including two romantic comedies, so I suggest that you lean that way, also.)

Okay. I’ve made up my mind. We will do a romantic comedy for Thursday, April 19. I want folks who go that route for their second short paper to be able to see at least one so we can more specifically discuss the tropes, themes, etc. associated with the genre. I haven’t entirely made up my mind yet, but I’ll need a pretty strong argument to move off of When Harry Met Sally, which is fun and almost a satire of the genre.

The film for April 26 is still undecided.
