There was on perspective on today’s reading that Jeff thought we should tease out. From the airport, he asked me to post this idea for us to chew on today in class:

This is a close reading of the film (The 400 Blows) itself, and we might also note that it begins to transition our orientation from creator perspective to artifact perspective. The way Neupert describes the film through the details of the creator and biographical details of his life is still creator-centric; but through the details of the film’s close reading, we should begin to see this also as an artifact-focused account of the film.

Also, I have the film with me today, so we can watch parts of it in class if we like. 🙂  Yay!
