What Makes Great Movies Great? Tell a Friend about this Course

Great film directors, taking on the toughest issues and most provocative themes of their day, often disguise their bold artistic intentions behind the mask of easily accessible genre forms and bury something quite profound beneath a story’s glossy surface. Clips from Sullivan’s Travels, Blow Up, Chinatown, The Verdict and other films will illustrate remarkable examples of cinematic mastery through technical innovation and complex thematic construction and Marc Lapadula, Yale University Senior Film Lecturer, will elucidate what is really going on beneath the scenes playing out on screen.
