2 page paper | English homework help
Watch Robert Bresson’s Pickpocket (1959) or Wong Kar-Wai’s In the Mood for Love (2000) on Kanopy.
Read the accompanying essays about these films.
Then you will submit a two-page reflection paper (APA style) explaining how editing and sound design function in those films. You must analyze at least two scenes as examples. Be sure to use specific details and relate to your textbook (CHAPTER 6) and/or external sources. If you don’t cite Movies and Meaning, I will deduct points.
You may not use other films instead of Pickpocket or In the Mood for Love unless as points of comparison.
Do not use terms like “personally,” “I think,” “I feel.” Treat reflections as if they were very short essays. Don’t evaluate these films (“Pickpocket is a masterpiece with great performances”). Avoid a casual, chatty, gossipy tone.
Finally, your abstracts should mention in the first sentence what arguments you’ll make about one of the two films you’ve chosen.
