ARTH 345 Film Criticism

The course teaches students how to use qualitative methods in film criticism and analysis. Lectures are designed to provide students with an understanding of the role of the critic and the process of criticism. Among the methods taught are narrative criticism, contemporary non-narrative criticism, genre criticism, auteur criticism, evaluating issues when adapting a novel into film, and a method of identifying documentary styles and formulas (established by Eric Barnouw).
