About Film Talk

Film Talk is a blog for students at SUNY Geneseo who want to discuss films.

Through mid-May students from ENGL 439 (The Film Hero) will be posting reviews and commentary based on what they’ve seen for the class.  Thoughtful responses are always welcome—half the fun of movies is talking about them!

One thought on “About Film Talk

  1. It’s an interesting question: how much of a hero’s achievements are of his or her own conscious deliberation and how much are products of happenstance? Both of these sides of a hero’s fate are symbiotically related, though, because where people decide to place themselves in the grand scheme of a goal can allow for luck to play its part, which can henceforth put them in a position to fulfill the achievement that, say, Clarice makes in Silence of the Lambs when stopping Buffalo Bill.
