Sarris, Andrew
International Film 1930-60

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

Sarris is a supposed legend here at Columbia. Yeah, riiiiiight. He's more like your long-lost dotty grandpa who every now and then coughs up an insight about a film along with his lung. The films are *half-British* anyway, so don't expect a real worldly perspective. If I wanted to see three weeks of Hitchcock, I'd have taken that odd-looking Hitchcock class a few semesters back. The grade is totally based on the TA's opinion of your writing and commentary in section, which is unfortunate because Sarris almost never arms you with anything constructive to discuss and write about. A low point in the film department.
