    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Sometimes the lectures deviated from the topic to much to understand the connections being made.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a better understanding of experimental film. Also I know more about genre than I did before joining the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Only take this class if its a requirement for your major or you are genuinely interested in film. If you are joining the class with a friend, share the text book. And don't shy away from PDFs or renting the book online for the course.
