tl; dr - Really good class but your experience will be highly dependent on hw strict of a grader your TA is.

Wuest is a really good lecturer and his lectures were super engaging and his passion was super evident. He was also really nice to talk to in office hours.

Each week has 2 lectures, and covered roughly a decade in film history. The lectures were asynchronous, with roughly one hour of lecture content and 1.5 hours of a movie screening per lecture day.

There's no midterm, but we were graded on 4 discussion posts, a research paper, and a final exam along with discussion participation. The forum posts weren't difficult as long as you watched the relevant movie and did some of the reading. Some TAs were super harsh graders and returned scores late, so make sure to pester your TA into releasing scores or talk to the professor if they don't. The research paper was a little vague, and slightly involved so try to start early on it. The final exam was basically slightly longer forum posts.

All in all, I really enjoyed this class and my TA (N. Spagnola) was really good. Take this class if you need a pretty easy GE, if you want to learn about film history, or just to watch some nice movies.

This is by far the best class I have taken at UCLA. Professor Wuest is a highly engaging teacher. He is the most considerate, politically correct, and, frankly, woke person I have ever listened to speak. You can hear even in the way he phrases his sentences that he prioritizes speaking respectfully, but no less honestly, about these controversial topics. He is clearly very knowledgeable about the issues and well-intentioned in educating his students the absolute most he can in the limited time of a topic a week. I learned a lot from the reading and the movie selection is really powerful. I also took this class during the Coronavirus, and his transition to online teaching was impeccable and easy. Even with everything going on, Professor Wuest is able to teach a perfectly structured and clear course. This is an essential series of issues that everyone should learn about and I highly encourage this class.
