2015 BLOG ASSIGNMENT #12

Read the Baz Luhrmann interview.

If you are doing this assignment before we view the film, answer this question: Based on what Luhrmann had to say regarding the entire filmmaking process, what aspect of Romeo + Juliet are you most looking forward to? Why?

If you are doing this assignment while we’re viewing the film, answer this question: Luhrmann had various goals and expectations when he set out to make this movie. At which ones do you feel he succeeded? How so?

If you are doing this assignment on Friday, answer this question: In great literature, no scene of violence exists for its own sake. Choose a scene from the film that confronts the audience with a scene or scenes of violence. Explain how the scene or scenes contribute to the meaning of the complete work. Avoid plot summary.
