Dr. Stuart Reichler’s Spring 2008 Bio 311D Bonus #2
22 April 2009 in class

See one of the following movies: "The Unforseen" (2007), "Baraka" (1992), "Grizzly Man" (2005), "Gorillas in the Mist" (1988), "Manufactured Landscapes" (2006), "Darwin's Nightmare" (2004), or "King Corn" (2007)  and write a short paper on what you thought of the movie.  You can watch as many movies as you like, but I will only accept one bonus assignment.  These movies may be available at the UT A/V library in the FAC (http://catalog.lib.utexas.edu), online, on Netflix, at I Luv Video (www.iluvvideo.com), or Blockbuster, etc.
    After seeing the movie, write a four page or less essay about your impressions of the movie.  DO NOT SUMMARIZE THE MOVIE.  Tell me what you thought.  Some themes you might consider could be:  Was it good or bad?  Did you agree or disagree with it?  Was the movie fair and/or even-handed?  What did you feel when watching the movie?  Which people in the movie did you feel the most empathy for?  These are only some suggestions, and you can write whatever you like about the movie as long as your essay is NOT SIMPLY A SUMMARY OF THE MOVIE.

Be certain to cite any outside sources that you use.  Using outside sources is fine, but not citing those sources is plagiarism.  This assignment should not exceed four pages.  This homework will be graded on a scale of 0-1 points.  The typed/word-processed paper should be printed and turned in during class on April 22, 2009I will subtract 0.25 points for each day late.

If you have any questions, please ask.
