We will view three or four of the most distinctive and important works from each of these directors, including titles such as It Happened One Night, Vertigo, Taxi Driver, Straw Dogs, and at least ten others. Students will be asked to attend weekly viewings as well as class, will participate on critical panels for at least one of the class films, and write analytical papers on topics developed through class discussion.
