Basic prompt for film-related post

In 500-750 words, isolate one or two sequences of the film (or animé). Discuss how ideas, ideologies and issues regarding food are treated in terms of genre, narrative, form, or ideas. Though it’s short, your essay should have an argument—it should explore a question, but does not need to have all the answers. Keep plot summary succinct and to a minimum; you might compare your text to other works, but this should be working toward clarifying some aspect of your main text. Also, you are welcome to use ideas discussed in class or section, but you should not just reprise them–add something of your own, as a “next level,” a challenge, etc. Post the essay by Friday Monday 5pm, and send a copy to BOTH the professor and TA as a MS Word document.
