Professor Browne has no idea what to do with an undergraduate class. His lectures are totally incohesive, giving no background for the films viewed, and providing no general outline of what exactly the course had covered. 2 weeks before the end of the quarter he announced that there would be a final (the syllabus specifically said there wouldn't be one), and refused to talk about the format the final would be in. He then cancelled the one section that was supposed to be held before the final, and failed to show up at office hours to answer all the questions the class had. His decision to hold a final came after the entire quarter had consisted not of lectures but of open discussions, which he was powerless to moderate, and let diverge entirely from the course material, and the readings he passed out were never discussed so the course was in no way structured to make a final appropriate. His mannerisms are incredibly annoying, and he makes the students feel looked down upon. While the films chosen for the course were good ones, and on the syllabus it seemed that each week would cover a specific topic, instead the whole class seemed to lack any sort of cohesive element.
