Letterboxd [If you choose to write response to a film we have screened in class, you have until the end of the following Tuesday (midnight) to write and post it.  This is to keep you from trying to write all your posts at the end-of-the-semester.  You, of course, can write responses on the films that are a part of the BFS film series and I will provide an ongoing list of films in local theaters that are available for responses.  You are limited to no more than two responses a week (once again I do not want you trying to cram a whole bunch of rushed responses at the end-of-the-semester).]
