Movie Analysis - The Exorcist

Write a short film report about The Exorcist. Your film report should be a critical appraisal of the film in terms of the subject and theme, not just a summary of the plot. This lesson deals with the filmic portrayal of religious good and evil. In other words, how are the issues of good and evil, in terms of religion, dealt with from a filmic perspective? What kinds of filming techniques, character representations, props, special effects, elements of mise-en-scène, editing, etc., are utilized in the portrayal of good and evil, and are they effective? Why or why not? Analyze the movie for its ability to convey the tension between good and evil through the medium of film. How is the film successful in this regard, and how is it unsuccessful? Obviously, you cannot explore the entire film here, but pick filmic aspects that seemed most relevant or affected you most directly, and discuss them analytically. The film explores the tension between religious and secular perspectives on evil in a variety of ways, but it is most notably evident in the tension between the perspectives of medical science and Catholicism. Father Damien Karras is both a medically trained psychiatrist and a practicing Catholic priest. On another level, the film explores the general theme posed above through the character of Father Lancaster Merrin, who is an archeologist, ordained Catholic priest, and a practitioner of Catholic-based exorcism. Obviously, the theme is developed in other ways as well. Is the theme presented coherently and convincingly? Explore your reaction to the film's content in order to develop this part of your answer. Any sources used must be acknowledged. Do not borrow information or ideas without documenting your sources—this is very important! In other words, have a bibliography or use footnotes to cite all sources you use—including websites. Consult an "MLA Style Guide" (available online) for specific information and examples. REQUIRED FORMAT Your assignment should be 750 to 900 words plus a bibliography. The report should be typed, double-spaced, with Times New Roman font (12-point), 1-inch margins all around, numbered pages, and black ink.
