Required Viewing Films

You can find out important information about each film by visiting the Internet Movie Database (IMDb) or the film's Wikipedia page. For standard film criticism terminology, see this Basic Glossary of Film Terms.

A Friendly Warning: If you can't or don't want to see a film, please don't rely on an online summary of it to fake having seen it. Because almost everything is a matter of interpretation, claims about what a specific scene means or how a character is presented are subjective. When you make a claim, I expect you to back it up with support. If you can't explain why you have this interpretation, because it isn't your own, you may be embarrassed.

Please remember to see each film before the date on which we will discuss it.
