There are 2 prompts you can choose from. The first prompt is that you can take a film we watched in class (list of films provided) and compare it to a film of your choice by the same director. An example of this prompt would be taking the movie Isle of Dogs by Wes Anderson (which we watched in class) and comparing it to any other Wes Anderson film. The second prompt is that you can choose a film we watched in class (see list of films) and choose any film of your choice by any director that takes place in the same city as the movie you choose from our class. An example of this prompt would be choosing Rocky (a film we watched in class) which takes place in Philadelphia and comparing it to any other movie of your choice that takes place in Philadelphia. The example I provided was comparing Rocky to Unbreakable which is another film that takes place in the city of Philadelphia. Regardless of which prompt you choose, you are going to be comparing the two films. You will need to make a thesis for this paper. An example thesis that was given by my professor was Through his films In the Mood for Love and 2046, Wong Kar-wai explores the placelessness of Hong Kong identity through tempestuous, unfulfilled romantic relationships. So if you make your own thesis it must be something specific like that. A thesis I came up with is Through the films Rocky and Unbreakable, John G. Avildsen and M. Night Shyamalan explores Philadelphian identity through the social structuring of heroism, the different types of heroes, and the problems that arise with being a hero. So if you would like to use my thesis you can. I will attach the annotated bibliography that I wrote to accompany that thesis. Also the paper needs to be in MLA 8 format and have citations. You need to cite your work, please use credible sources such as academic journals, scholarly articles, etc. If you use the thesis I came up with you can use the 4 journals that I found and cited in my annotated bibliography. Thank you so much for the help. I hope this makes sense. If you have any questions please ask me. I would love to collaborate and and communicate through this project.
