Using any and/or all of the essays by Bazin in your readings (along with additional research you undertake, if needed and/or desired), test out the validity and usefulness of his theories on cinemaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Ã¢â‚¬Å“ontologyÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“evolutionÃ¢â‚¬Â on any ONE of the following contemporary film that takes up and expands the neo-realist tradition:
Nobody Knows (dir. Hirokazu Koreeda, 2004)
Do you think this film fulfills BazinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s hope for a Ã¢â‚¬Å“pure cinemaÃ¢â‚¬Â where Ã¢â‚¬Å“life itselfÃ¢â‚¬Â¦becomes
the spectacleÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“small events test the extreme limits of our capacity to perceive
them in timeÃ¢â‚¬Â? How so? In other words, engage with BazinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s theories on realism vis-ÃƒÂ -vis a
close analysis of the filmÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s form, content, and socio-historical significance. Does the film
youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve chosen abide by, flesh out, and/or tweak BazinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s idea of cinematic realism? How so?
What do you think this contemporary film reflects and/or anticipates about cinematic realism?
1) formulate an effective thesis, 2) craft solid and meaningful critical analysis, 3) use appropriate, specific, and illuminating examples from the theoretical and filmic texts at hand, and 4) enter the discourse of classical film theory with a confident, scholarly voice. DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t forget to also title your paperÃ¢â‚¬â€construct an original, unique title that specifically reflects the subject and argument of your essay.
