Answer the following questions in a minimum of 2 full pages  using complete sentences in essay form.  Give explanations WITH EXAMPLES to help describe all details.


DO NOT PROVIDE A SUMMARY OF THE STORY, WE’VE ALREADY SEEN IT.  DO NOT REVIEW THE FILMTime spent summarizing the plot of the movie will not help your grade. Instead, please respond to ALL the following questions in the form of an essay. (A simple way to do this is to make each set of questions, below, its own paragraph. Please don't include the question numbers in your paper.) 


(“Film 4: Editing and Sound Design.”) Please select one of the following films and answer the questions about it. This list of films is roughly organized from most to least violent, since a number of these films have quite violent scenes.


Pulp Fiction, Slumdog Millionaire, Goodfellas, Out of Sight, Apocalypse Now, Mulholland Drive (the 2001 David Lynch film –this one also has some strong sexual content), Memento, Run Lola Run, The Thin Red Line, The English Patient, American Beauty, The Conversation (1974 Coppola Film), Lawrence of Arabia, City of God, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, or Citizen Kane.




1.  How does the editing contribute to this film?  Does this film mostly use continuity editing, discontinuity editing or a mixture of both?  Is the editing mainly seamless and nearly unnoticeable, or does it call attention to itself?  Why do you think the filmmakers made these choices?  Give examples of specific editing techniques the filmmakers chose. 






2.  Select a pivotal scene and identify those moments when the sound creates emphasis by accentuating and strengthening the visual image.  What are the specific sources of sound in that scene?  What types of sounds that are used in the scene?  Does this film use silence expressively?






3.  In the film overall, how is music used?  Is it used in a dominant way to manipulate the audience's emotions, or is it more subtle or non-existent?  Does the use of music in this film seem appropriate to the story?  Give a specific example of how music was used in the film.
