For my film, I chose Modern Times with Charlie Chaplin. This film follows the "classical narrative style" by fading to black to signify to the audience that the plot was making a move forward in significant way. For example, after Charlies character is thwarts the jailbreak, it fades to black, and revisits him in a more comfortable jail cell, and then cuts to a radio saying that he has been pardoned of his crimes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
