A lot of you, cyber-kids, want to take Film Directing Online course; there is still around 130, who signed with E-Yahoo, but this is not how it works. First, you have to commit yourself to self-education. You have to to be aggressive (in filmmaking this quality is a must). Nobody can't teach you how to be an artist, but you can learn how to be an artist...
I am placing htmlgears on my pages, so you can add your links, your texts and so on. I fully realize that this is the way to turn your sites into a public bathroom in the Central Park with all the graffities... I just delited a note, submitted by some idiot to "New w/Anatoly" gear -- "lost virginity"... I hope you understand, this is not the way to study films. In short, there are a lot of losers out there, don't be one of them.
Anyway, as you say, back to our subject -- films. It's rather simple. All what you have to do is to think. All right, watch those movies, but think... and you will become Tarantino. Just think about what you saw. That's all.
You can't become a filmmaker without thinking. Period.

Acting in Film Analysis class *
Film Acting Pages: actors
2004: I do not know when I will have time to write about "acting in movies" -- here is a short list of actors I refer to in Film Analysis class.
Acting is a part of "mise-en-scene" in many textbooks (need definition).
Maybe I will put my comments to the titles and actors later. Anatoly
PS. Watch the movies on your own, we don't do in class.
There are other movies with Jack Nocholson could be recommended (use Amazon suggestions).
[ I am not mentioning European film actors here. ]
See Acting I, II, III and Film Directing pages.
