Question description

Need these answered in complete sentences. No specific word count, just answer each part of the question in complete sentences

1. Imagine you are a character in a Western. What sounds do you hear? What sounds do you not hear, but the audience does? From these, discuss how sound manipulates audience reaction in Westerns. Name some other characteristics one finds in all Westerns. How do they contribute to Westerns?

2. Name some characteristics one will find in all documentary films. How do they contribute to the documentary? Can documentaries and their components be measured the same as other film genres, such as Westerns or comedies?

3. Chapter 10 of the text discusses how Invasion of the Body Snatchers and High Noon can be understood as reactions to the practices of the House Committee on Un-American Activities. What are other examples of films that address controversial issues or political events in indirect ways?

4. Chapter 10 discusses the changing depiction of people of color in the movies, and how this change developed from African-Americans and Latinos driving the means of production themselves and depicting themselves in a positive light. Outside of African-American and Latino-directed films, do you see more positive portrayals of people of color in mainstream movies in the past 10 years?
