Professor Hewitt is one of the most interesting people I have met in my life. His lectures are very interesting, intertwining film and German history, and almost always adding some sexual element into the discussion. His sense of humor is great too, and he is by no means strict. The three quizzes are a piece of cake. Just remember main points and themes about the film and how to write a standard five paragraph essay. No midterm or final. There is a final paper however, and I procrastinated until the very end to do it. Honestly, it's the worst paper I have ever written in my life, but I guess that had no bearing as I wound up with an A in the class. TAKE THIS CLASS!
Professor Hewitt is witty, personable, and extremely intelligent. The reading for this class is dense and difficult, but Hewitt breaks down the material in class with funny, contemporary analogies. If you are interested in philosophy and theory, regardless of your major, take this class. But do all the reading and be prepared to be called on in class.
