So far, the readings and quizzes have emphasized the elements of cinema and their terminology, and the lectures and screening notes have emphasized the narrative function of these various elements. For this assignment, we would like you to look closely at a scene or an element in a film and explore its relationship to the whole. Choose one of the 9 films we have seen so far (see list below).
Choose a scene that interests you, that puzzles you, or that you find especially compelling. Choose a scene you think is particularly rich, that has resonance with the rest of the film. For example, our analysis of the “You Were Meant for Me” scene in Singin’ in the Rain demonstrated not only that it echoed many of the ideas present in the rest of the film, but that the structure and mise-en-scene told us a lot about the status of Don and Kathy’s relationship. Similarly, you’ll want to pick a scene and pay close attention to what happens and how it happens. How does the cinematography, editing, sound, and mise-en-scene in this scene convey information that helps us understand the rest of the film? All four elements will be present (except in a silent film), but some may be more important than others. Indeed, each of these elements are broad categories; choose specific, salient techniques within them. You’ll have to decide what is worth paying attention to.
