Gana is the most uninspiring arrogant fuck I've ever encountered in my entire life. This is my fourth year at UCLA and I've never had an issue with a professor. However, I cannot CANNOT stand this man. He is truly a piece of shit. I have approached him many time in office hours asking for help with material. After every conversation with him, I've left the room feeling like shit about myself. Mind you, I have a 3.94 GPA and the material in his class is not really over my head, I just wanted guidance in doing an assignment. He spreads negativity like wildfire. He is a disease that needs to be quarantined and kept away from developing minds.
Winter 2021 - Hands down best class I have taken at UCLA, I learnt so much, watched so many movies, became friends with everyone in the discussions and love the professor. He is passionate about what he teaches, has a great syllabus with diverse movies, films and interviews to watch, and kept the class engaging all 10 weeks. Workload was very manageable and participation was expected. I highly recommend this class and I guarantee any of his other classes are amazing as well! :)
