Tufts University: Mark Karlins - Drama - Professor ratings, reviews and much more | JumboAccess
Mark Karlins | DR050 - Introduction to Film Studies| Drama2004-10-19

The class itself is interesting, and the material covers a great section of cinematic history (it's all the movies you should have seen), but unfortunately, Prof. Karlins' treatment of the material lacks focus. He was late to class almost every day, and it took him a large portion of the class to actually "get started" with the material for the day. It seemed that by the time he finished getting his papers in order, loading up the movie for the day, and taking attendance, the class was almost over. It's difficult to put a serious amount of effort into a class when the professor doesn't seem prepared. If you want to become more educated about film, I would suggest getting a copy of the syllabus and watching the movies on your own. Better yet, get a group of your friends to do the same thing, and talk about them together.

Several short responses, a small number of longer papers, a few quizzes, and a take-home final. There is reading for every class, and there is one movie assigned to watch outside of class each week. It's not too bad, but sometimes it's hard to feel motivated to keep up with the work when the class itself is so far behind the syllabus.
