So, I am still stuck on Geiger…in a good way! One of the take-a-ways that I would like to bring up for discussion was from page 28 when he says “critical film analysis and interpretation enables us to understand our cultural beliefs and our own ideas, our own ways of seeing and thinking about the world.” I saw this as an amazing point that through the simple process of reflecting on a work or a text we are also defining our world view so to speak. What are your takes on that or the implications of that. If effective criticism is designed to be persuasive is that imposing personal beliefs on others? Just a thought to rack the brain a bit.
