It has come to my attention that when students take some sort of film class they have a greater appreciation for the art of cinema.
It is one thing to learn how to make a film. You are more likely to appreciate it if you understand how it has been constructed but what if you were just told to watch movies?
He told me in his class they watch a different genre of film every week. For example they have watched "Citizen Kane" for mystery.
"It's nice because you are able to discuss with other students why one movie should be considered for one genre or another."
He said it has been interesting to talk with his fellow students why certain movies have certain plot lines or why the cinematographer shot a scene a specific way.
I always enjoyed my film classes in high school and in college so it's nice that others are enjoying it as well.
