SAC 330 - Major Directors
Section: 001 Stanley Kubrick
Term: FA 2007
Subject: Screen Arts and Cultures (SAC)
Department: LSA Film, Television, and Media
Requirements & Distribution:
Advisory Prerequisites:
May be repeated for a maximum of 9 credit(s). May be elected more than once in the same term.
Primary Instructor:

This course will devote its entire attention to a retrospective of Stanley Kubrick's films, emphasizing their cinematic "languages," dramatic themes and the relationship between what they say and how they say it. One film per week [Mon. at 7 P.M.]; two one-and-one-half-hour lectures [Tues. and Thurs. at 1 P.M.]; mandatory small discussion groups. No prerequisites, but the course is not "An Introduction to the Movies," so previous film study couldn't hurt. Reading [Giannetti's UNDERSTANDING MOVIES], will give beginners a solid foundation [alternate text for those familiar with basic film study texts]. Purchase of a pass admits you to all screenings at the Michigan Theater. Rigorous writing with high standards for analytical/critical prose. Three 2-page papers; final exam; no "Incompletes" except under catastrophic circumstances. Those who insist that “media” takes a singular verb flunk.
