History of American Cinema: This course will use a political economic approach to analyze the ways in which politics, economics, and technological innovation directly affect the abstract understanding of what American consumers consider "a good movie." To put it another way, this is the flip side of NOVA's CST 151 "Film Appreciation" course. Instead of examining the genius of revolutionary film makers, this course considers the ways in which zeitgeist and economics determine what is a "great movie" more than the aesthetic of the film itself.
