Ten Films You Should Have Seen
Two Zoom Sessions
Thur., Nov. 14, 21, 2024, 6:30-8:30 pm MT

There are thousands of films released every year, so yes, it's entirely possible that you might have missed a few of the greats! But here’s something you do not want to miss: Film critic and life-long movie aficionado Dave Taylor shares 10 of his favorite films from the history of cinema in this lively and entertaining course. Before viewing and discussing an extended clip or two from each featured film in class, Taylor provides a summary and explanation of why it's worth your time to watch (or rewatch). Each film selected also represents an important cinematic or dramatic concept, including what it means to be human, the hero's journey, selfish versus selfless actions, our modern disillusionment and distrust of politics, female and minority representation in cinema, and how people learn to accept and embrace technological advancements. Films on our list include: Singing in the Rain, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Candidate, Seven Samurai, The Sting, Hidden Figures, Dr. Strangelove or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, Le Samourai and Rear Window. Taylor says he plans to talk about other movies as he proceeds in the course. He also requests that you bring your own top 10 list to share with your fellow classmates. Anyone smell popcorn?

Dave Taylor has been watching films for as long as he can remember, with a particular enthusiasm for science fiction, mysteries, dramas and cheesy creature features. He teaches marketing and film related courses at the University of Denver and his film reviews have been widely published, including on his own site.
