Ebert Eye

Prompt: After reading Roger Ebert’s “How to Read a Movie”, find a clip or picture from a movie and record a video of yourself analyzing your choice.  Pay attention to the details about where the characters are, and what role they play in the scene.  Look at how the characters are portrayed, and if their positions fit their portrayal.  Use an Ebert eye to look at it.

This is a 4 star assignment.

At night, I often sleep to Agatha Christie mysteries or M.C. Beaton’s Agatha Raisin series. My hearing is so sensitive that I cannot sleep without something playing in my ears. Otherwise, I hear every thump and bump in the house and I stay up all night. During the day, I listen to the Chilluminati podcast. On this podcast, they discuss all of my favorite mysterious things. Plus, the guys are just funny.

I am a lover of true crime, unsolved mysteries, paranormal investigations, alien conspiracies, government conspiracies…any conspiracies, really. So, when I saw this assignment and the change to evaluate American Psycho, I had to do it. This video did have some music in it, so hopefully it doesn’t get removed for copyright. I did try to give the appropriate credits and follow the copyright rules.

To understand the methods for analyzing, check out Roger Ebert’s article, “How to Read a Movie.” I reference this article several times in the recording, so make sure you are familiar with the techniques before watching the clip below.

And now….a warning. This video has adult themes and strong imagery. Not recommended for anyone under age 18.
