Book DescriptionMany believe there is nothing like seeing a good movie, one that is enjoyable both in itself and for the thought processes it stimulates. From The Usual Suspects and When Harry Met Sally to Gandhi and The Color Purple , this handbook functions as a guide to watching and reflecting upon 75 great films. The author, a philosophy instructor, presents a text designed to lead readers through a series of intellectual gymnastics; to help strengthen critical thinking abilities and to inspire exciting and philosophical thoughts and discussions. "Civil Disobedience", "Death", "Fate and Determinism", "War", "Sexism and Women's Issues", "Gay Rights", "The Greatest Happiness Principle", "Anxiety and Inauthenticity" and "The Holocaust" are examples of the 18 different categories into which the films are divided. Each chapter includes the author?s introductory comments to be read prior to watching movies along with a section of "Questions to Ponder"...
