  • Good analysis! I like that you chose the female gaze (like Konrad haha) but you took a different approach to it. You wrote it personally and you used a lot of details, which made a good combination. I know that English isn’t your first language but I really understand what you’re trying to say and […]

    1-This had a lot of errors (like question marks in the beginning of the sentence?). 2- You didn’t specify the scene you are writing about. How are we supposed to know what you’re talking about if you just say- “There is a scene in the movie about the male gaze” and don’t even describe it? […]

    I posted my analysis pretty last-minute, so I didn’t realize we did the same scene, hah.

The sound on my laptop actually wasn’t working, but I already […]

    I like how we both wrote about Umberto D but our posts are sooo different! The Neorealism of it didn’t even come up in my mind as I was typing. I found this movie incredibly depressing as well, can that poor man ever get a break? I noticed he was contemplating suicide when he was […]

    I think you could have gotten more detailed with your analysis, like using more shots, camera angles and all that nice film terminology stuff, but besides that, you brought up some good points- like instead of a bunch of angry human beings, it’s one big monster. I loved this scene, it was so creepy! And […]
