LA 190 Relevant Films (Suggested by Charlene Fix)

Art School Confidential (set in Brooklyn, I think Pratt)
The Shape of Things (boyfriend becomes senior thesis project)
Bagdad Café (totally feel-good movie with a painter character)
The Seventh Seal (Ingmar Bergman) (the images, especially the Knight playing chess with Death, are so utterly iconic: we have an obligation, no? to make our students culturally literate)

What films have you screened with success (or not) in LA 190?

  1. I've shown _Thank You for Smoking_ as a way to introduce argument (plus it's a bunch of satirical fun) and, more specifically at CCAD, _Ghost World_as a way to discuss graphic novels, of course, but also issues of art in a consumer culture, the artist as "outsider" and growing up in general.
