Has anybody suggested Young Mr. Lincoln in conjunction with the extensive 1972 Cahiers du Cinema analysis? That's pretty much all ideological.
the 1955 and 1995 versions of Richard III, esp considering the vast amount of material on the original (& which could raise the issue about the durability of political concerns - I'm guessing few of us today much care about legitimizing the Tudors)
the coded-political 70s horror films such as The Hills Have Eyes, Scanners, It Lives Again (I think there's a Robin Wood essay about some of these)
Crumb (pop vs high culture, personal/political, family & gender issues)
Cradle Will Rock

>Subject: [SCREEN-L] Suggestions for rhetoric of/and film class
>I am teaching a graduate course called Rhetoric of/and Film this fall. I'm looking for some suggestions for films. I'd like to cover about ten or so, at least half documentary. I'm so overwhelmed with the sheer number of options right now I'm having trouble settling on something, so I thought I'd send a request for any suggestions, ideas, etc. I'm looking for a variety of films that will offer us the opportunity to examine ideology and how it is presented in varying methods and degrees.
