Regan, Marie
Intro to Film

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

Prof. Regan really knows her stuff when it comes to film, which sometimes makes her come off as arrogant or condescending towards students. The truth is, she's very approachable and honestly wants her students to understand the material. She is usually willing to meet with students before or after class and is open to questions and discussion during class. There is a lot of reading for this course, but you'll do well on the papers and midterm if you just follow directions and study. Regan's strictness in class makes her seem like a harsher grader than she actually is. Overall, this is a very intense and interesting course but be prepared to do the work. Regan is a great teacher who is excited about the material and eager to share her knowledge.

Workload:

-4-pg. paper, in-class midterm, final paper-Very dense theory readings (8-12 pages a week), plus easier textbook reading (usually around 20 pages per week)-Participation grade (at barnard)
