The Movies: Cultural Enrichment or Co-Dependence?

exco's picture


RAY will cancel the class if he does not hear from anyone by Monday.

Do movies enrich us culturally or have they become an addiction because we simply don't want tell our own stories anymore and worse yet we don't even want to communicate with each-other? In this effort we will be examining such classics as the Devils General, and anti-war movie from the German point-of-view made in 1955 staring Kurt Jurgens. The Godfather, a movie in part made by Italians, it is the tragedy of the American tragedy in microcosm. There will be several other classics offered in this class, such To Have and Have Not starring Humpfrey Bogart and Lauren Bacal.
