This study guide for Arthur Lipsett's film "Very Nice, Very Nice" is in four parts. First, it describes and evaluates the film, discusses Lipsett's unusual juxtapositions, fast cutting, and fragmented speeches as indications of his satirical intent, and suggests that the only meaningful summation of the film's content is through pattern recognition and image clusters. Second, it lists comments to the teacher, and suggests ways of approaching the teaching of the film. Third, it offers questions to stimulate general classroom discussion of the film (e.g., What images suggest violence? oddity? alienation? What use is made of advertising? What emotions did the film maker evoke? How appropriate is the term 'psychedelic' in describing the film?) And fourth, it presents three types of projects which can arise from the study of the film--i.e., writing poetry, arranging series of photographs, and using sound and film to achieve a dramatic effect.
