What is cinema? What are its defining properties? What should film do, and what does it do best? How do spectators perceive and understand projected moving images? These are kinds of questions that classical film theory attempted to answer. This course examines the writings of a number of classical film theorists, working to understand, apply, and interrogate their respective arguments in relation to a series of selected films.
