Movies to see general culture

The general culture by the movies

Posted on July 10, 2012

Films belong to our daily lives: they are at the heart of contemporary, family or friendly culture. This book is betting that they are not just an object of entertainment or a matter of specialists. They deserve to enter fully into the field of general culture, because they are the privileged witnesses of the modern world and of our modes of representation or thought. To analyze a film is also perhaps to understand oneself.

The student or the curious will find here examples of films he often knows, to feed his reflection and allow him to develop a solid culture, but above all personal and original. Each film is indeed read in the light of a general reflection, led by specialists from different disciplines. Cinema is then the occasion of a meeting between different fields of modern knowledge.

• To the students in the framework of the contests (HEC, IEP, administrative competitions, ENS): they will find an original tool to prepare their glues, their oral or their dissertations

• To literary students or artistic sectors who want to discover through aesthetic analysis the challenges of the contemporary world, through various genres and directors

• To all the curious and passionate who think that cinema is more than an object of entertainment

General Culture - Movie List

Sunday, May 3, 2015

Here is a list of films originally intended for high school students who are keen to build a cinematographic culture, especially in view of the competition of Sc Po. It is by no means an exhaustive list and it is obviously subjective ... It includes high-budget American films as well as art and essay films, films that are very easy to see and others that are more delicate. They are not all necessarily high quality but the idea was to offer films that have made history in the history of cinema. The presence of some directors is finally the personality of the author of this article - which is also well aware of the somewhat unfinished aspect of this work and the shells that must remain ... Finally, some films include scenes that may shock some students.
