Film Analysis Student Name Institution Instructor Date Film Analysis The 2015 Furious 7 film is one of the most fascinating videos that changed my thinking perception and had enormous lessons that are applicable in real life situations. It is a Hollywood field that tries to present to the viewers some of the most complex situations that require decision making and working as a team it brings suspension and sends gestures that could unite humanity. Furious seven was directed by James Wan and is set in settings that the characters are placed. Besides the film transformed my way of thinking because of its ability to trigger critical thinking; for example it shows the connection that the family has with the society and how different situations can threaten the bond thus making the viewer to relate the situations with the personal experiences.

Denotation and Connotation of a film that changed your life: Close Reading, Scene Interpretation and Analysis of a Course Concept (2-3 pages) a) DENOTATION What is the form and what work is it doing? In the first paragraph, describe in detail without interpretation, a scene, shot or sequence from a film that changed your life and conclude it with a succinct thematic, problem identification or question. This is your argument—it makes clear why the paper continues or must exist! b) In the second paragraph, provide an analysis of the scene, shot or sequence. Here, you are interpreting what you noticed in the film (as described in the first paragraph) and build an argument around it, using a course concept presented in one of the course readings. This is your interpretation of the scene, shot or sequence using a framework from the reading, which is very rich and loaded with important lenses you can use for analysis. A quote from the reading must be used in this section. c) In the third paragraph, demonstrate an improved understanding of the film not only to prove or disprove the course concept, but to clarify or complicate it. You are answering why is this new knowledge worth knowing? Or in other words, how did this film transform you and offer a new perspective? Another way to think about the significance is: What did your work teach you about the unique power of cinema? Or how does the theme raised in the film lead you to Cinema Studies?
