FLM 152 — The Ten Greatest Films of All Time: Part I
This course will explore films 10 through six from the 2022 poll, including Gene Kelly and Stanley Donen’s joyful Singin' in the Rain, Lynch’s acclaimed thriller Mulholland Drive, and Stanely Kubrick’s towering science fiction achievement 2001: A Space Odyssey. Taken as a whole, these diverse masterpieces show the range and power of film, the most important and influential art form of the 20th century. Students in this course will learn about the history, production, and artistry of each film and come away understanding why these movies are considered the greatest of all time.
This is the first course in a two-part series. Part II will be offered in Spring 2024. Students are welcome to enroll in both courses or take each course independently. All films can be rented or streamed through Netflix, Amazon Prime, iTunes, Google Play, or other online platforms.
