Watch one of the following films and write a 500-word review as if you were writing for a newspaper, magazine or online review site.
In the course of your answer, please describe the plot, interpret what you think the film means (making sure to use the concepts we have learned in class, which include the social, historical context, and techniques used) and then judge its worth (‘thumbs up or thumbs down,’ so to speak). Make sure to back up your judgement with facts and instances from the film itself.
