The Hurt Locker Film Review Questions-Australian National University .

Remember, you need to be as specific as possible when answering the questions. Use examples from the film (this means a specific scene or moment, not an overall wash of the movie) to back up your conclusions.
Title your paper with the name of the Film you chose from your four options.
Films: Letters From Iwo Jima(2006) Da 5 Bloods(2020) The Bridge on the River Kwai(1957)The Hurt Locker (2008)
You will need to watch the film and then answer the following questions. (Choose one of these four movies to watch)
1. Is this a genre you are familiar with or one that you are interested in? Why did you choose this film instead of the other options from your assigned options? Have you ever seen this film before?
2. Using SPECIFIC examples from the film, what are at least FOUR examples of how this film fits into this genre? Are there plot elements in this film that are indicative of your assigned genre? Now, think about Mise en Scène (setting, props, costumes, lighting, sound, score), camera shots, writing style, acting style, pace, special effects, etc. How do these elements contribute to the genre?
3. Genre is a very fluid concept. One film could use elements from many different genres. Are there other genres (beyond your assigned genre) that your chosen film could fit into? Include at least ONE specific example of how your film might fit into another genre categorization.
4. Overall, what did you think of this film? Did you like it? Did you hate it? (Think question is about YOUR opinion. Can you respect the work even if it wasn’t your favorite? Or do you have a new-found appreciation?) This is YOUR OPINION, so please share honestly, but make sure you tell me WHY.
