Film Analysis Assignment

RATIONALE: The purpose of this assignment is to demonstrate the depth and breadth of your understanding of the three perspectives covered in this course: psychology, sociology, and anthropology.

INSTRUCTIONS:The student will:

  • Watch one film that has been assigned and approved by the teacher
  • Analyze the film by using theories and concepts learned throughout the course from a minimum of two perspectives (psychology, sociology, anthropology)
  • Write a report. It should be typed and double spaced, with a length of 750 – 1000 words.

TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS:To produce the best quality work, the following are suggested:

  • Watch the film more than once.We often miss subtleties in films that enhance our overall understanding of the major themes and concepts if we only watch a film once
  • Take notes on things you notice that relate to the course as you are watching it. After that, categorize your ideas under psychology, sociology, and anthropology.This will allow you to figure out what perspectives you will use for your report.
  • Apply the concepts and theories of the course to explain the events and behaviours found in the film.The depth and accuracy of your analysis is crucial to earn a good mark.
  • Watch your film with someone else and discuss it with them.
  • Participate actively in class when we do a practice run of this culminating activity.
  • Do not leave this assignment for the last minute.

Note: They must state the name of the film in the note.If there is a film you would like to do that is not on the list, you should present me with 2 possible ways you can analyze it.An assignment completed based on a film that I have not approved will not be marked.
