Format for the Film Review Paper:

A. Use the MLA format.

B. Each review should be 3-4 pages.

C. A Works Cited Page is required FOR EACH FILM. A paper without one will receive an automatic THREE POINTS DEDUCTION FOR EACH FILM REVIEW (That could add up to 15 points for five films.)

D. EACH film review must have at least FIVE works cited and at least FIVE endnotes. Use the MLA format. Points will be deducted for fewer than what is required.

E. Use the MLA format for your citations of research.

F. Please follow the narrative organization I laid out above.


1. Watch the film and research the definition of the film genre you have selected. An example: what has been the formula for the romantic comedy over time? Has that formula changed in time?

2. Research and discuss the key film cast: Actor, Actress, Supporting roles

3. Research the director and producer—which studio (s) distributed the film

4. Any key artists involved: cinematographer, editor, art director, etc.

A STUDENT CAN WRITE A REVIEW FOCUSING ON THE ARTIST: An example: Would “Citizen Kane” be the same film if Greg Toland had not been the cinematographer? Film is a collaborative process and your paper should reflect that.

5. Did the film correspond to similar films in that genre? An example: does “Blazing Saddles” stay within the formula of the western genre? Whichever five genres you select, ask that question.

6. In each essay there should be a review of two scenes that you feel helped make the film work. Discuss: lighting, use of color, shot selections, editing, angles, etc.

7. Critical reviews, box office and any award nominations

8. Your assessment of the story and the film.

9. Use a narrative format. You can use an outline format but only in a narrative style.
