Instructions and Rubrics for a Film Critique
Posted on: Saturday, February 1, 2014 4:44:28 PM MST
First rule of thumb: a film critique is NOT a summary of the film. Rather, it is an analysis of one or more [racial/ethnic] issues as seen through several critical cinematic expressions including some significant scenes or reoccurring themes in the film. Therefore, please keep in mind that you MUST try to avoid to summarize the whole movie’s plot in two pages and submit it, thinking the job is done. You should, instead, look for one or more interesting scenes in the film that resonate/suggest the racial/ethnic problems in the cinematic products, and analyze it/them according to the discussing topic (Native Americans, for example) under the theoretical lens drawn from the associated reading[s]. Your paper does not need to cover the whole film. As a matter of fact, a strong analysis of a single scene/theme is more powerful and effective than a lengthy list of what happen in the film.
Second, a film critique is a serious piece of writing that displays not only your understanding of the material, your critical thinking skills, but also your commitment to bona fide academic ethic and college-level academic writing. Be precise, be clear, be candid, and be appropriate. Treat your pieces as a job application for the matter of seriousness. Any sort of essay, for example, will need at least three paragraphs for an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. For a 500-word paper, the advice is that you should not go for more than 2 sentences for the introduction and 2 sentences for the conclusion. Use all the remaining word counts for your analysis. I encourage you to put on the Works Cited (or References) at the end of the second page to give credit to the author(s) from whose work[s] you borrow the ideas. Don’t try to search for what have been written on the Internet. For one, they might overwhelm/intimidate your own thinking. For two, you might not be able to resist the temptation of stealing someone else’s ideas. Plagiarism is the worst form of academic dishonesty. Believe me, I usually can tell right away your own thinking and that of some movie “nerds” who posted such things on the web. And surely I, too, can google to find out the truth.
1. Does this paper address issues of race, ethnicity, or other categories of identity in the film comprehensively and critically?
2. Are the relations/connections between the film and the reading material clearly mentioned?
3. Is the paper compelling and interesting? Creative and thoughtful?
4. Is the paper clear and focused enough? Does it have a visible trajectory and make a cohesive point?
5. Is the paper well written, properly cited, proofread (etc.)? Does it conform to the requirement of length and format?
