Before participating in this discussion board, please make sure you’ve watch to 1:07 of Inside Llewyn Davis while taking detailed notes. In addition, you will want to remind yourself of our discussion board standards by reviewing the discussion board rubric download. And, finally, it should go without saying that we a required to be respectful and courteous at all times.
Here’s what I want you to do in your initial post: In at least a full paragraph (minimum five sentences), explain briefly what you think is interesting, important, and meaningful.  You don’t have to have all of the answers, but you want to provide specific examples as the basis for further discussion.
Again: consult your notes. You may post more than once if you’d like to engage more than one topic in detail. I do not want a review (an evaluation of whether or not you like the movie): I want you to contribute specific observations that we can use to begin to understand how this movie works to construct meaning.
Make sure your post is up by the posted due date.
Then, after you’ve posted, you’ll be able to see your classmates’ posts.  Respond to two of them–talk about, in at least three sentences, whether you see what they see in the film.  Where are your interpretations similar?  Different?  
Responses need to be submitted by the following due date.
 “The Dark Knight” reunites director Christopher Nolan with star Christian Bale, who returns to continue Batman’s war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as the Joker (Heath Ledger), who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight ever closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
