Review about a film

cultural criticism of a film

Film criticism is the analysis and evaluation of films, individually or collectively. It can generally be divided into academic criticism, carried out by specialists in film theory, and journalistic criticism, which appears regularly in newspapers and other media.

The impact of criticism on box-office receipts is a matter of debate. There are claims that the marketing of films is so intense and highly funded that critics can do nothing against it. However, both the commercial failures of some heavily promoted films (e.g., Alexander in the United States), which were harshly criticized, and the unexpected success of lauded independent films (such as Pulp Fiction) indicate that extreme critical reactions can have considerable influence.[citation needed]

Almost all films, no matter how they have been criticized, may have some critics who praise them. These accolades usually appear in the film’s publicity. They usually tend to include expressions such as «Spectacular,» «Wonderful,» or «Thrilling.»[citation needed]

film review example

To write a film review is to give an argued and personal opinion about a particular film. In other words, it could be said that it is equivalent to writing an essay about a subject that pertains to cinematography.

Why is it compared to the essay? Because it is, in essence, a personal and free approach to a subject. These two pillars, freedom and the writer’s own voice, are what characterize the essay genre.

Criticism is always personal. It should not be forgotten that readers are looking for the author’s own voice when they are reading his or her position on the film. It is preferable, therefore, that the reading informs about the film’s own aspects, such as the development of the story and the central plot. And at the same time, the author gives his or her particular approach to these aspects, analyzing, weighing up the aspects he or she considers positive and negative.

Making a review, a good one, is not an easy task. It is an art that requires a great capacity for observation and analysis. As we have seen, the objective aspects of the films are mixed with, obviously, the subjective vision of the critic. Combining them in the right way is a challenge.

analysis of a film

The end, however, comes, and it comes in a dizzying and moving way; moving, above all, because of the performance of Robin Williams and a cast of young actors (some of whom have successfully continued their acting careers) who know how to endow with verisimilitude this group of restless teenagers, schooled in a closed-minded boarding school, whose horizons open wide thanks to their new literature teacher and their encounter with poetry.

It is poetry, in fact, more than cinema, that oozes from this film: a poetry that makes the viewer who has been able to enter the story grow the same seed of carpe diem that Professor Keating sows in his students. That is why this film, although not impeccably made, should be a must-see for all teenagers: not because the protagonists are also in their teens, not because it deals with family problems and major themes such as friendship, loyalty and betrayal, but because its frames – and its verses – inspire to live.
