The Film and Reading Review

You can use as many outside resources as you need. The film and reading review should address genre, technology, history, acting, casting, and stylistic aspects of each film with attention to both image and sound. The film and reading review should be structured like an argument evaluating each. You can title each section by the title of film or reading. If you have any questions, let me know.
