Course Description:

In the 1950s, a new kind of screen performance known as “the Method” exploded in the movies and forever modified the way performers relate to the art of screen acting. The style was both naturalistic and intense, with eruptions of emotion. Its roots were found in the Stanislavski Method of the early 20th century, and adopted and further developed by legendary acting coaches like Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner. Method acting gave rise to new movie performers who eschewed glamour in favor of intensely personal, internalized and naturalistic acting; they went beyond portraying characters to literally becoming them. In this series, to celebrate Method acting's longevity and importance in modern cinema, we will view and discuss four acclaimed Method films made in the past twenty-five years: "Boys Don’t Cry", "Monster", "There Will Be Blood", and "The Fighter".
