Do not use terms like “personally,” “i think,” “i feel.”

Watch Orson Welles’ Citizen Kane (1941) or Yorgos Lanthimos’ Dogtooth (2009) Read the accompanying essays about these films.
Then you will submit a two-page reflection paper (APA style) explaining how editing and sound design function in those films. Be sure to use specific details and relate to your textbook and/or external sources. If you don’t cite Movies and Meaning, I will deduct points. Answer the following questions for which you’ll need those two scenes?
1. If the film uses dissolves, fades, or cuts, how do they contribute? Choose one scene. 2. If your film uses sound bridges, ambient sound, how do they contribute? Choose one scene. Do not use terms like “personally,” “I think,” “I feel.” Treat reflections as if they were short essays. Don’t evaluate these films (“Citizen Kane is a masterpiece with great performances”). Avoid a casual, chatty, gossipy tone. Finally, your abstracts should mention in the first sentence what arguments you’ll make about one of the two films you’ve chosen. Your paper should include :Cover Page, Abstract, 1-2 Reflection Essay and Citation page. Turnitin can be 25%.
