The Film School Thesis Generator is a fairly accurate spoof of the academic jargon used to describe the art of cinema.
Created by designer and writer Mike Lacher, it is worth typing in a few films to try it out.
The new Justin Bieber movie Never Say Never?
“Through the use of subversive semiotics, Never Say Never echoes the rise of currency and the loss of utopia”
What about the dire Stallone cop movie Cobra (1986)?
“Through the collapsing of identity and whiteness, Cobra hybridizes the rise of currency and the loss of utopia”
The Michael Winner clunker Bullseye! (1990)
“Through the fluid identification of the viewer, Bullseye asks telling questions of Bergman-esque assertions of the nature of humanity”
All time box office champ Avatar (2009)?
“Through the deliberate suppression of colors meant to signify passion, Avatar dichotomizes the primacy of scholarship in the Abrahamic religions.”
What about Christopher Nolan’s Inception (2010)?
“Through the conflicting duality of progress and humanity, Inception asks telling questions of established notions of the star system”
And Citizen Kane (1941)?:
“The strategic use of narrative ellipses in Citizen Kane calls into question pre-Oedipal anxieties”
