Lecturer: Laurence Knapp
Presented in cooperation with SAIC’s Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism, this series examines the changing status and historical contexts of the criminal in American and international cinema, from the Italian/Irish go-getters of the 1930s to the romanticized outlaws of the 1960s to the hipsters and serial killers of recent years. Weekly screenings on Fridays and Tuesdays are accompanied by Tuesday lectures by Laurence Knapp, professor at Oakton Community College and author/editor of books on Clint Eastwood, David Fincher, and Ridley Scott.
