Analysis of films

Define and discuss auteur theory, using materials from this week’s Module and the Auteur Theory Resources page: • You may want to grab your reader’s attention with a quotation, or provide theoretical statement reflecting your approach to the task at hand. • Provide a thesis statement identifying the directors you are examining and discussing how they fit into your basic argument. • Provide a roadmap for where you are headed by briefly mentioning the films, scenes, and/or concepts you will focus on in the in body of your paper. II. Body Paragraphs • Director approach: Discuss Truffaut and The 400 Blows, then discuss your second director and film. • Thematic approach: Discuss each director and film by devoting paragraphs to various topics (narrative, cinematography, lighting, sound, editing, etc.) • To define the unique cinematic language created by these directors, apply critical concepts we have learned about this semester to frame your discussion: “form,” “content,” and “cinematic language” (see Chapter 2); narrative and cinematic tools (see Chapters 3 and 4); mise-en-scene i.e. (see Chapters 5 and 6).
