ENGL 226: Film as Literature: Getting Started

What You Need To Do First

Watch Your Film

  • Your best understanding of your film and related literature comes from your own watching, reading and thinking

  • Critical sources are intended to assist your own analysis.

  • You will be able to use critical sources much more effectively after you have acquired personal knowledge of the works.
