The course requires a total of 4 papers. The last one is not given a prompt so the writer is supposed use the previous prompts to create and answer a new prompt for the last paper. The movie used for this paper is Fever Pitch. Here are some examples of prompts used for Fight Club:
4. Brookey and Westerfelhaus (2002) argue that Fight Club is an homoerotic film that masks its eroticism behind men fighting (a perceived heteronormative thing to do). They point out several areas where the film could be read differently by heterosexual and homosexual audiences. Do you find their argument convincing why/why not?
5. All three of the articles talk about the film being sexist, particularly the fact that Marla Singer is the only main female character. Do you feel that her portrayal simplifies women and femininity even as Helena Bonham-Carter argues that David Fincher (the filmmaker) has a feminist streak? Does this film portray women in degrading ways?Tags: discuss, fever, pitch
