Content and Style
1. It is totally legitimate to read reviews by others, but it is NOT advisable to write a typical review as written by newspaper movie critics. They review the movie as an art form, and you are to review the movie as a historical and social/political story.
2. You write the essay as a “China Specialist”—which you are by virtue of enrolling in this class—to help a non-China-specialist understand the movie.
3. You do so by describing the historical and social background of the movie. This includes when the story was taking place and what the Chinese society was like at the time.
4. You do so also by explaining the plots and characters in the context of the social and historical background.
5. You should show sufficient knowledge about the period in which the movie’s story takes place. You may refer to the class readings and lectures. And you are encouraged to do research on your own to gather more information.
6. Some suggested components:
Ø Briefly summarize the film including
§ Story and Plot of the movie
§ Time frame of the story/historical setting
§ Main or pertinent characters in the movie
Ø Analyze social-historical dimensions of the film utilizing a sociological, historical perspective (This is the main purpose of the essay and what you should spend the most writing space on.)
§ The social environment
§ The historic time (period)
§ Social and historical forces that shaped characters and plot
§ Influence or remnants of culture, politics, cultural and political changes
Ø Briefly offer your general assessment
§ Which issues emerged as the strongest…as the weakest?
§ What was the most important thing you learned about China from watching this film? What will you take away?
