Transcript

  • 1. To what extent are your chosen texts typical of their genre? How do your chosen texts use genre conventions? ...this question has also been phrased... There are lots and lots of things to write about regarding Slumdog Millionaire for this question – it should be easy! Things to write about... • Conventions & key signifiers • Iconography • Storylines, plots •Themes, functions and binary oppositions of the genre • Use of dialogue, language, music • Use of technical codes • Hybrid genres • Auteur theoryVs GenreThings to consider... With examples, you need to demonstrate that this is a Romantic Drama film - find elements that are iconic of the genre. These can be visual codes and technical codes, however you should also talk about the themes that are typical. What is this film about? Discuss the fact that there are elements of a hybrid genre – predominantly a romantic drama but also influenced by Bollywood and British Asian cinema. Where are those influences? Again, look at the visual and the thematic. Is this a genre movie or is Danny Boyle’s influence too noticeable? Can he be considered to be an auteur? Make a For and Against argument with small references to other films - explain how the theory runs counter to genre theory. Explain Boyle’s visual signature on the movie. Briefly discuss how the non-linear narrative disguises the fact this has many conventions of the genre. FilmGenre
