托福听力必背的 经典段子3

  托福听力段子3.

  文科段子:电影艺术

  To get us started this semester I am going

  to spend the first two classes giving you background lectures about

  some basic cinematic concepts. Once you are a little more familiar

  with basic film terminology, we will be ready to look at the

  history of movies in the United States. You’ll be expected to attend showing of films

  on Tuesday evenings at 7 o’clock in Jennings Auditorium. That’s our lab. Then during our Wednesday

  seminar, we’ll discuss

  in depth the movie we saw the night before. We are not covering

  silent films in this course. We will begin with the first talking

  motion picture, The Jazz Singer, released in 1927. The next week,

  we’ll be looking at The

  Gold Diggers of 1933, a piece that is very representative of the

  escapist trend in films released during the depression. Some of the

  films we will be watching will probably be new to you, like Frank

  Capra’s Why We Fight.

  Others you might have already seen on TV like Rebel without A Cause

  starring James Deane, or Stanley Cooper’s Doctor’s Strange Love. However, I hope you see even familiar film

  with new eye. In the last three weeks of the course, we will be

  watching films from the 1980s and you’ll choose one of them as a subject for an

  extensive written critique. We’ll talk more about the requirements of the critique later

  in this semester.
