About this course:

“The play’s the thing wherein to catch the conscience of the king,” Hamlet said. This course constitutes first viewing a film—the screenplay actualized—and then addressing the existential dilemma put before us in the work—the flesh and blood human situation in which the characters find themselves. We break the film down, analyze how it uses the verbal, visual, and visceral art forms in presenting our dilemma. Each Reel Dilemmas course offers all new films, none of which are advertised ahead of time to ensure that the class is not affected by preconceptions or reviews. You would be surprised how it changes the understanding of the film.  Please appreciate the philosophy behind that process.
