Directions for writing film reviews: The number of points you get will depend on the quality of your work. Twenty-five points is the maximum for this report, and there is a fifty point extra credit maximum for the semester. Your review should be based on your own ideas and interpretations. Nevertheless, I suggest that you read the published reviews of each film you review to see what others have said about them. Note that all the formal academic writing guidelines apply to this assignment. Properly cite your sources in the text, according to the citation guidelines of the Modern Language Association (MLA), including any published reviews you use, then add them to the bibliography.
