documentaries, books, articles, radio broadcasts, music, encyclopedic and dictionary references, as well as any other
sources and citation sources. Please pay attention to detail: be specific, be scholarly, and be thorough. “

Submitted as MS Word document
Students may select a film that they have previously explored in previous Discussion assignments
Students must establish a coherent thesis statement in the introduction of their paper with a claim that they intend to prove. The body of the essay serves to support the thesis through an analysis of the film and other relevant material. Avoid simply rehashing descriptive material from other source.
Support your thesis through textual and formal analysis. Refer to specific shots, scenes, characters, stylistic devices, and themes in the film.
As much as possible, use technical, literary and industry terms to make your points.
If needed, you may use additional resources to support your claims. Suggested sources might include academic books and articles; film reviews; and personal opinions from reputable film critics and scholars. Information other than production details obtained from popular sources such as The Internet Movie Database and Wikipedia is not considered reputable.
Only use plot information to support the thematic points of the paper. Include only one to two sentences of plot summary when explaining each of the required film elements.
Also, students should not choose a film that the authors of the textbook have analyzed in detail.

My comments:
1. before you start writing let me know the movie you are going to write about.
2. there has to be lots of quotes from the readings I will upload for getting more grades.
3. this assignment doesn’t ask for describing the scenes because the teacher asks for analysis and discussion about the question and reading assignments it’s fine to describe a little just to relate to something.
4. Last paper I got a nice grade but I lost some points due to not share our own opinion. And What lets the essay down is a frequent lack of sophistication in the analysis, and the way you often use quotes from secondary sources to make or reinforce very basic points. There needs to be a greater depth and nuance to this discussion. Expanding on the more meaningful aspects of the topic will improve your work in the future.
Please consider about the comments to improve in the new assignment work.
Ask me anything for any clarifications.
Please don’t share the assignment paper on other websites to avoid Plagiarism, Thank you!

For this assignment you will have to choose one film from Italy and analyze it with respect to a particular cinematic tradition (e.g., if it’s a German film, give a short overview of German cinema first, and then proceed with your film analysis). Your theoretical film analysis should rely on at least two concepts that have been introduced during the semester (e.g., such concepts as “transnational cinema,” “counter-cinema,” “Third Cinema,” “minor cinema,” “intercultural cinema,” “non-cinema,” “imperfect cinema,” “peripheral cinema,” “accented cinema,” “mythopoetic cinema,” etc). In your analysis you should refer to specific articles we have read, name theoreticians, and introduce their ideas. Overall, your research paper should address the major topics of our seminar with respect to this film; i.e., embrace the questions of global/transnational film through the prism of assigned theoretical readings. In your discussion, you should refer to four sources from the assigned course materials (please see attached sources to be used in the paper), in addition to at least two/three print sources beyond the syllabus.

In this paper, I will argue that the audience accepts the perspective of the primary character as fact by highlighting how films adjust the flow of time to control the narrative through a comparison of Momento (2000) directed by Christopher Nolan, Shutter Island (2010) directed by Martin Scorsese, and Gone Girl directed by David Fincher.

TV Show Title: The Future
Genre: Sci-Fi
The story is about a woman, Ashley, who wakes up in the future, with no memories of who she is,
but tells her day-to-day life as a “normal” citizen of society in a futuristic setting. She is someone
who doesn’t panic about this, and instead doesn’t let people know that she lost her memories,
but instead lives her life as if she is still normal and in control as she rebuilds herself. It is a
show that shows the sci-fi aspects of a future society as things are more technologically
advanced and developed, but there are still day-to-day occurrences and problems that future
people encounter. She also doesn’t know who she is, but is expected to fill the role or
personality of the person she once was. It takes place in a futuristic New York City as the main
character works an office job at a building in the sky, but also lives in a ruined apartment
complex that is on the ground of the city. The supporting characters include: her nosy co-worker,
Susan, who makes comments or asks a lot of questions when she’s in the office, her boss,
Rachel, who is only present when deadlines are near and is hard on her workers, and Vince,
who is her brother, that is the only source of her memories and who she was before she lost her
memories.
The big problem that will carry over from week to week is, who is the main character? Or what
memories are she missing that makes her who she is. She is also constantly being told that her
habits are different now, as if she’s an entirely different person due to her losing her memories.
The big overarching problem is that there is something not quite right about this setting, and it
explains why Ashley doesn’t remember anything or why she did not tell anyone who she is. It is
because Ashley is not Ashley, but someone who is controlling a person’s body in order to obtain
information about this world they are in. Instead, the person who “Ashley” was is someone
whose mission was to take this person’s identity, but ended up growing into the identity and
started to care about the people around them.
