Films i chose: robert weine, the cabinet of dr. caligari (1920).

answer the following question: Recently we have focused our discussion on Modernist film. Please write an essay explaining what Modernism is and how it relates to realism. Select one modernist film from the list below and write an essay arguing how it enacts and engages with the concepts of modernism.
Is the film Dadist, Surrealist, Expressionist, or Constructivist, and why?
What are the specific traits of that particular modernist genre? What are the effects of the modernist techniques used in the film?
How does the film break with Realist practices (define them) and what are the conceptual or aesthetic consequences of that break?
Please refer to specific scenes and shot sequences from the film to support your answer. Draw upon the readings and the lectures to support your argument.

Please answer the prompt above after watching and analyzing the movie casablanca.

Examine one of the films listed in Module 2 from M2 Censorship or M2 Classic Hollywood, and write a short (400-600 words) response focused on the question, “What is the actor’s contribution (e.g., physical action, montage, characterization)? Pay particular attention to your perception of the emotional impact of the performance and whether you believe it is the actor’s art and intuitive response or a combination of cinematic techniques (editing, juxtaposition, sound, cinematography) that creates the experience for you. Please avoid extensively summarizing the plot at the expense of analyzing the actor’s performance. You must put the word count on your essay under your name (my name is Jonathan Juliano).
You will examine the film Casablanca (1942) {Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart), who owns a nightclub in Casablanca, discovers his old flame Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman) is in town with her husband, Victor Laszlo (Paul Henreid). Laszlo is a famed rebel, and with Germans on his tail, Ilsa knows Rick can help them get out of the country.}
Please answer the prompt above after watching and analyzing the movie Casablanca. Refer to the attached rubric for further guidance.

How is it associated with character, events, objects, or other cinematic techniques (e.g., camera movement)?

Research question/topic of essay:
Find a repeated sound technique or motif (except musical). How is it associated with character, events, objects, or other cinematic techniques (e.g., camera movement)? What does this association have to do with character psychology, the plot, or the theme(s) of the film? (Write no more than 500 words.)
the introduction should not be very long, it should contain the main info about the film and then get straight to the point of the research question and what the essay will mainly focus on.
it is very important for The timings to be included. Any point made should have a specific time from the film to back it up.
a title that matches the topic of the essay
reports about musical motifs consistently fall into the trap of indicating the presence of the music without using the vocabulary of sound to describe its sonic character. If you insist on writing about music, you must speak to the professor first.
Common conventions when writing about film:
When mentioning a scene, indicate in parentheses the time code for the start of the scene or moment under discussion. For example, “When we first see Lucy in the office (3:20), she is wearing a gray blouse and skirt.” Please note that reference to a time code is NOT a substitute for accurate, detailed, and vivid descriiption.
Italicize or underline film titles—no quotation marks or bold.
Refer to characters by the character’s name, not the actor’s name (see above for a list).
Use the literary present tense when describing events in the fictional world: “Literary works, paintings, films, and other artistic creations are assumed to exist in an eternal present. Therefore, when you write about writers or artists as they express themselves in their work, use the present tense.” Vanderbilt Writing Studio. (For more information on the literary present tense, see this helpful guide.)
Example of the literary present: “In a scene early in the film, Lucy and Mitch meet Kyle at a restaurant, where Kyle quickly acquaints himself with Lucy.”

Other things to keep in mind:
Put your name and the date on the essay, and give the essay a title that reflects your claim.
Number your pages. Include a word count at the end. Double-spaced, 12-point font. 1-inch (2.5 centimeters) margins on all sides. Indent your paragraphs, rather than adding extra lines between paragraphs.
you should construct your body paragraphs in the following way:
1. Setting the (emotional tone of the) scene
2. Describe what you see (or hear)
3. Explain the connection between #1 and #2
If we were to write a paragraph about sound, what would it look like? Let’s take an example from a film we have seen:

White Saviorism projects Africans as incapable of solving their own problems, and it articulates the over-reliance on white folks. The crux of the white trope denies Africans the agency to bear knowledge and act independently. Write a detailed rebuttal of the white savior trope, highlighting in specific terms how the movie Blood Diamond constructs and projects a hierarchy of power between African and White characters in the movie.
