General Guidelines

Review should be 3-4 pages long, typed and double-spaced. No outside research or commentary on the film is required. However, if outside sources are utilized, proper citations must be used. All papers must be the student’s own work. Pay attention to spelling, grammar and usage as they form part of your final grade. I will give a one day grace period in which I will accept the assignment the day after the due date with a ten percent late penalty assigned.
