My Homework For Extra Cridets


Below you’ll find a very short list of films about art and artists.  Some of the films are documentaries and some biographical retellings.  For extra credit, you may submit one film review before the end of the course.  Papers should be at least one page in length and include a summary of the film and personal reflection on the narrative, film execution and/or artist’s works.  This is a very abbreviated list – If you would like to watch a film that is not on this list for extra credit, see me first for approval.
