For Thursday, October 20, please do the following:
(1) Watch The Legend of Hercules (Renny Harlin, 2014). The movie is available on DVD via closed reserve in Scribner Library, and is also streaming on Amazon. The film is one of two big-budget Hercules productions from this year.
NOTE: There's no scholarly resources on this film, but you might recall Gideon Nisbet's line of thought about Hercules being imported to Rome quite easily.
(2) Read pp. 121–57 of Looking at Movies Chapter 4
("Elements of Narrative"). This will be one of our last assigned readings in LAM, so I hope you've enjoyed the book. Remember, it is a resource for you in your analyses and semester projects.
(3) Speaking of the semester project, please review the Project web page and come to class ready to ask questions, if necessary.
Remember by noon on Thursday to comment on this post with your choice
of sequences from our film to view in class.
