Review and discussion of influential films that address or touch upon important political issues in the United States. By exposing students to classic and/or out-of-the-way movies that they might not otherwise experience, the course promotes the development of critical thinking skills. Students are encouraged to view film as more than simple entertainment, but also as an influential means of conveying political ideas.

Course centers on the development of the constitutional framework of American government with emphasis placed on reading and analysis of U.S. Supreme Court cases. Topics covered may include judicial review, separation of powers, federalism government regulatory authority, and the rights of criminal defendants.
