Books Movies to read see before you die. None of the movies clock over a hundred minutes, the movies in this series are slightly off, hard to find, and often overlooked. But they are all gems. These are not movies you can see at your local theater; most fell off the cultural radar years ago or never made it to the masses.

Not a superhero in the bunch. No Barbenheimer here, either. Most of these movies would fail the Bechdel test, miserably. Please query dougr@sheridan.edu for the list of titles. Coursework will include screenings, discussions, and online response posts.
