  • Understand how films portray and communicate social and moral dilemmas
  • Communicate personal opinions about social and moral dilemmas

About this course:

Great films not only entertain, but aren't afraid to ask timeless questions. We view an eclectic mix of six great films that, besides their intrinsic merit, reveal specific social and moral issues that are not easily solved and still vex us today: M (1931), Angels with Dirty Faces (1938), The Hook (1963), El Norte (1983), Force Majeure (2014), and Eye in the Sky (2015). After a brief introduction, we view each film and then discuss our own answers to the questions posed by the film, as well as our opinions as to each film's artistic merit.
