    | No strong feelings either way.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course was extremely interesting in terms of the information and analysis, however if Cinema Studies is not your primary interest, it is difficult to retain all of the information in relation to all of the films we watched over the semester.

    Course highlights:

    This class opened up my eyes to the art of film and all of the work and decisions that are involved in the process of creating a single film. I now look at movies in a different way as I now have a toolbox, gained from the class, to analyze fill and now I am more able to interpret and view aspects in the film and to what effect they bring.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it if you want to learn about film art as you can take advantage of the best film school in the world.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Dr. Casper talks about movies with more passion than anyone else! All lectures are beautiful, intriguing, exciting and emotional.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of how to watch a movie critically and of how to analyze movies. It is very important to know how to critique movies in order to make movies, so this class is very important and useful for film students.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take notes, pay a lot of attention, and stay for the movie screening after lecture! The exams only cover lecture material, so it is important to take good notes and not miss out on any information. It is also important to be familiar with the movies screened in class because you are required to use them as examples in the exams.

    Hours per week:
