WATCH : (I recommend checking out one of these about a week after school ends ) Write a film critic style review of the flick you watch. Include in your review notes on the accuracy or inaccuracy of the depiction compared to history. (Approximately ½ page typed)BTW: There are lots of other great films and documentaries about artists and their work. Most of these are rated “R” and so I did not list them. Ask your parents to okay any of these before viewing.
