10-12-10 Realism & Formalism Code of mode of representation/Style Film is usually “catholic” (objective in how they deal with reality/subject matter)…but can be subjective Objective film: Style of Realism Subjective Film: Formulism Realism: Matter of 1:1 correspondence of how they are in reality and how they are rendered (dedicated to showing and recording that reality) -> from the mimetic (pantomime, mimic) As a method and attitude of mind Could this be considered an accurate depiction of reality/nature? Realism is no guarantee of truth (Documentary is the most realist of all realist styles, those aren’t always true) Realism as an attitude of mind: RELATIVE truth, truth that can be verified in experience effect of ACTION and motivation people and their relationship to institutions, society, setting, etc. (characters are layered) often critical of status quo realist likes to deal with common average people and everyday situations (wants audience to recognize character and find the situations topical)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
