Developing a Critical Response to Media Viewing with Special Reference to Television and Film-Video Demonstration.
Daya, D. D.
This paper outlines the fourth-year film appreciation course at Rand College of Education in Johannesburg, South Africa, designed to develop a greater critical awareness in students so they are able to distinguish between good and mediocre film and video material. Some attempt is made to establish what qualifies material to be regarded as "art." The paper discusses soap operas; television films based on a Barbara Cartland novel and on Sydney Sheldon's "Memories of Midnight"; and the films "Lethal Weapon 2,""Lorenzo's Oil,""Baghdad Cafe,""Howards End," and "The Remains of the Day."
