A reminder that this is the last week of blogging. The week ends at 11:59 pm on R 12/5.
You should bring a shareable rough draft of your third Comparative Analysis to class on W 12/4.
Last chance to get your film questions answered.
Are mutants/the X-Men compelling to you as marginalized figures? What do see them as being a metaphor for, e.g., sexuality, gender identity, race and ethnicity, ability? How does X2 show this marginalization?
So, thinking back on all of the films we have screened this term:
- Which film is your favorite?
- Least favorite?
- Which are you likely to watch again?
- Which are you likely to never watch aagain?
- What film are most glad to have seen?
- Least glad?
- Which was most interesting to you in terms of mise-en-scène?
- What was most interesting to you in terms of the theme of On the Margins?
Post on other matters from the week here.
Share your initial reactions to X-Men: United here.
How do Carol (Cate Blanchett) and Therese (Rooney Mara) negotiate their identities in daily life? In what way do they try and flee "to the margins" to live their lives together? Why doesn't this work? What are the power differences between the two of them?
Next to last chance to ask whatever you want about film.
