PART 1:
Mission: Imposible (1996)
Directed by: Brian De Palma
Starring: Tom Cruise
Comment on the specific film you saw in terms of its genre and the quality of the film itself. Pay attention to the camerawork (cinematography) the editing (montage) and the sound (including music). What did you like and what did you dislike? Why do you like the things you like, and why do you dislike the things you dislike? Is the film a good film, or is it not? Finally, is the film successful in creating a work of fiction using the craft of filmmaking and considering when it was made? (Note: This is not the same question as whether or not you liked it. It is entirely possible to like a film that you are aware is not very good.)
Part 2: Now that you have commented on the specific film you viewed, see if you can draw some general conclusions about the work of the director and one of the main actors or actresses. Be sure to comment on the overall impression you had of the film, including how you see it as an example of the its genre and time period. Remember, this is film review based on your opinions and insights: do not repeat what you have learned by reading up on the film or the filmmaker.
Part 3: On a separate page, insert the heading “My Criteria for Quality in Film.” Under that heading, propose four general statements indicative of your personal taste in movies. These statements should be numbered (5) through (8), and they should be written as complete sentences or a short paragraph.

Each critique should be a minimum of two pages in length, typed and double-space

Each critique should be a minimum of two pages in length, typed and double-spaced with 12 size font and appropriate margins. It should have the structure similar to any critical paper- an introduction with a thesis, a body with examples and evidence supporting the thesis, and a clear conclusion.
Your thesis should be your statement of your “feelings” about the production: Did you like it? Did you dislike it? Were you bored? Was it engaging? Exciting? Average? Mediocre? Etc.
The body of the critique should include specifics concerning why you did or didn’t like the production. Things to comment on might include the acting, was it believable? Were some performers stronger than others? Why were they stronger? What made others weaker? What did you think about the direction of the play? Did it appear smooth and seamless? How was the pace? Was it rushed or did it drag? What did you think about the set, costumes, sound and lighting? What was your first impression of the set? Did it make you curious? Relaxed? Edgy? What did the costumes tell you about the different characters? How did the lighting affect the mood of the piece? What were your thoughts on the story itself? What did you think about the characters? What do you think the intent of the production was? Was there a specific message that you as an audience member received?
Focus on how effectively all the elements of the show combined to tell the story. There are many different things for you to comment on in your critique but the bottom line is simple. You either liked the production, found it average, or you disliked it. Now your job is to explain why.

ABOUT THE MUSIC AND MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
The report should describe the music being played, as far as possible using analytical terms and techniques learned in class, and should make comparison with any similar genres we may have studied in class.
You should pay attention to and describe the types of instruments being used, types of vocal music (solo? chorus? male and female dialogue-style? etc.), as well as auditory features of the music. For the latter, think about points such as the following: Do you hear Western-style chords being used? Is there generally a steady rhythm? Or a mixture of metered and unmetered pieces? Does any one instrument seem to keep the rhythm for the whole group? Do you hear monophony, heterophony, or polyphony? Any call and response? Does one part sometimes seem to imitate another? Also, is there a conductor? If not, does one musician seem to take the lead in starting and ending pieces? Are the musicians playing from memory or reading from sheet music? Does there seem to be improvisation?
ABOUT THE CONTEXT, PERFORMERS, AUDIENCE, ETC.
Also think about context and extra-musical issues. Who are the performers? Students, professionals, or a mixture? What kind of clothes do the performers wear? Is the audience largely composed of people who are students, or relatives of the performers, or people who appear to share similar cultural heritage with the music being performed? Or is there a culturally more diverse audience? How do they react to the music? Sing or tap along with it? Listen in a respectful silence and applaud at the end? What is the occasion of the performance? A formal concert? A demonstration in a museum? An informal outdoor concert? A street festival?
