Netflix Pics – Connor Rush’17
Netflix Pix is a film club centered around films on Netflix so that they are more widely and easily accessible. The club is based on a sort of book-club style format. Every month or so the club’s film is designated and an email is sent to the members with some things to keep in mind or things to look for when watching the film. This month the club’s film is Nightcrawler. Then after two to three weeks the club meets to discuss the film. We focus on the artistic qualities of the film and examine the filmmaking. People also share their opinions on the film and anything they found interesting including qualities about the directing, writing, editing, and acting.
