I’m studying for my Film class and don’t understand how to answer this. Can you help me study?

Watch the movie and answer the following questions. When you watch, keep track of the time stamp, which is when something in the movie happened.

TIME STAMPS NEEDED FOR EVERY QUESTION

1. The film is loaded with long takes. Spot three – one in the first third of the movie, one in the second third and one in the last third, time stamp them and explain why those are the ones you liked best.

2. When Kane’s mom and dad are signing papers in the boarding house, it’s an example of deep focus, WHERE ALL AREAS (BACKGROUND, MIDDLE GROUND AND FOREGROUND) ARE IN FOCUS). Time stamp it and explain what action is happening in all three fields of depth.

3. The breakfast table montage – when Kane and his first wife are having breakfast – is one of the most famous montages. Time stamp it, and then explain in detail in what ways Welles shows how the marriage is changing (hint: spot the paper his wife is reading as one example). Use both visual cues and sound ones.

4. Rosebud is explained in the end, but what do you think it truly represents? Give an example from during the movie that backs up what you think it means.

TIME STAMPS NEEDED FOR ALL QUESTIONS

1. Woody Allen’s voice is strong during this period. This film is unique in his work because almost all of his credit are simple white credits on a black background, but this one is completely different. It uses a famous George Gershwin song and has shots of New York. Describe the feelings you get from the opening and how you think it fits the narration.

2. During this time, he liked to use long take, long shots – often on a New York sidewalk or street. Find the one with Allen and his male co-star talking walking and talking about the affair, time stamp it, and offer a reason you think Allen uses it.

3. This is a rare black and white movie for Woody Allen, shot when black and white was rarely used. Argue why you think this movie works in black and white – think story, shots, whatever you want to use to make your argument, but cite at least two or three examples.

4. The movie subverts the romantic comedy myth. Explain how.

5. Name any examples of Allen’s auteur theory that you recognize from the lecture, and cite at least three examples.

5. List three moments you liked best in the move, time stamp them, and say why.
