With Corrigan as My Guide

Why Write About the Movies? Timothy J. Corrigan asks in his first chapter of A Short Guide to Writing About Film.

Then he sets up possible categories of film writing:
1. The Screening Report
2. The Movie Review
3. The Theoretical Essay
4. The Critical Essay
5. Opinion and Evaluation

Imbedded in these categories is the challenge of trying to "think about, explain and writing about" our experiences with the movies.(3)

Already Corrigan has raised the following questions that I might think about when I see my next movie:
1. What does the title have to do with the film?
2. Is there an unusual structure to the film?
