The new assignments

Because it's too lengthy to explain on the calendar (though I'll list it there), here are the assignments for the upcoming classes:

For the section that hasn't finished watching The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, please read the handout containing reviews of The Great Train Robbery and the early Edison and Lumière films. We'll discuss those on Thursday, Sept. 25.

For the class that has finished The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (and for the other class once it has), write a capsule review of the movie, making it less than 200 words; also write two 10-word reviews or summaries of the film (make them fun!). Also, read the piece on Dr. Caligari in the second handout. Lastly, read the piece on Nosferatu in Ebert's book.
