Throwback Thursday: Crank and the Digital Age
The very first Throwback Thursday post! In honor of Throwback Thursday I’ll post an unedited piece that I wrote in the past, likely for an assignment from College. For the very first of this series, I have chosen Crank (2006). This was written in 2012 for my U.S. Film History Since 1950 class (a great class taught by the fantastic Prof. Siegel), we kept a blog for class and wrote about every film we wrote. This piece focuses on how Crank very perfectly serves as an example of the increase in camera movements and extremely short length of camera shots per second that films have featured more and more in the past ten years, and also reflects the digital age in general.
