An affable, leisurely, friendly amble through aspects of film criticism (the role of a director, the conventions of film genres such as westerns or sci-fi , the representation of gays/women etc). Also some key moments of film history such as the French new wave, new German cinema, film noir, silent films and much more.
Roughly a third lecture/screening/class discussion; this is a chatty, informal entertaining group. Occasional visits to the cinema occur.
