The Best Long Films Well Worth Your Time
Screening a standard-length feature motion picture, with an introduction before and a discussion afterward, takes three full hours of class time. But what about the many extraordinary films—some among the greatest films ever made—that take even more time to tell their stories. In eight four-hour class sessions, we finally will get to watch—and then discuss—eight extremely diverse and incredibly worthy movies, all of which run over two and a half hours in length. Films tentatively scheduled to be screened include Rocco and His Brothers, Nashville, Seven Samurai, Yi Yi (A One and a Two), and The Right Stuff.
