DAR* 105: Hollywood, Addiction and Mental Illness

3 Credits
This course will review movies, both past and present, that involve substance abuse, addiction, mental health, and treatment. We will discuss and analyze how Hollywood has depicted these themes over the last 50 years and examine how it has impacted society’s view of addiction and mental health. The course is also designed to introduce you to the artistic, cultural and historical dimensions of these types of films. You will be required to view films, read material that explores the nature and impact of the film medium and write analytically about the style and content. Some films may carry ‘R’ ratings, primarily for strong language, violence and nudity.
Offered: Occasionally
