Bonus Film Opportunity: Third Time’s the Charm!

Are your essay grades less than desirable? Do you need to do some grade repair?

Then you need to complete the Real to Reel assignment by May 16th!

As we discussed in class, remember that this assignment is NOT a simple bonus assignment– your work needs to be thoughtful, reasoned, and polished, and address all of the requirements described in the assignment sheet above. Poor quality work will be graded as such. This is, however, an optional assignment– you are not required to complete this review, and if you choose not to submit one, you will simply be given an exemption.

In order to help you make your selections for this assignment, I humbly present the original trailers to all of the films listed below:

Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India, dir. Ashutosh Gowariker (2001)

Paths of Glory, dir. Stanley Kubrick (1957)

Modern Times, dir. Charles Chaplin (1936)

***NOTE: This is a silent film. I know. You’ll live.

Casablanca, dir. Michael Curtiz (1942)

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, dir. Stanley Kubrick (1964)

Charlie Wilson’s War, dir. Mike Nichols (2007)
