I made this study guide to accompany our viewing of the 2004 film directed by Joel Schumacher. This guide gets students to truly "critically" view the movie, and uncover lots of symbolism they wouldn't otherwise notice. Questions are focused on important aesthetic details of the movie. Students do no need to have any prior knowledge of The Phantom of the Opera for this unit. 75 questions (I have them divided into 22 scenes) focus on: Camera angles, Setting/atmosphere, Choreography, Lighting, Ordering of scenes, Props, Transitions or juxtapositions between scenes, Actor’s mannerisms, gestures, movements, interactions, Costume/makeup/dress and Physical changes in setting/actors’ appearances. I use this viewing experience to align with state standards of ELA, which specify "Critical Viewing," and also to introduce the next unit of writing that students will do in the course--writing their own movie script. (Assignment also available). I have some introductory notes on Phantom at the end of my Love Story PowerPoint (available).
