I’m working on a Film question and need guidance to help me study.
For the final project, write a 5-6 page paper.
A Japanese director. Starting with a brief bio, discuss a major Japanese director, his films and his style. This can be a director whose work was seen in class. Watch at least two of the director’s films (not seen in class) and include a critical response to those films.
A critical analysis of an important Japanese film. This should look into the production, critical response of the film as well as an examination of the film’s themes and visual style. The film should not be one assigned in this course.
An examination of a Japanese genre (samurai, kaiju, shomin-geki, yakuza, anime) or theme (i.e. Women in Japanese films, WWII in Japanese films). Watch at least two films in the genre or theme (films not seen in class) and include a critical response to those films.
