Professor Gabriel was at times hard to understand due to his accent, but I felt that I walked away from his class with some new perspectives and thoughts. Some of the films are boring, but the ones that do manage to keep your attention are interesting and thought provoking. The unique thing about Professor Gabriel's selection is that the movies are all diverse. The reader for the class is thick, and some of the readings are hard to follow. Overall though, the class isn't extremely tough. Sometimes you have to smooth out the edges on your own.
