(2) 2 film reviews to count for approximately 20% of the course grade. See the film list (Appendix B) and the study questions at the end of this syllabus. The hard copy of all six film reviews should be submitted in class; and an electronic copy in Word format should be simultaneously uploaded to Moodle.csun.edu (for Turnitin originality report) on the due date. The due date is at the top of this syllabus. I do not accept late or emailed film reviews. Late reviews will get an automatic F, and will not be accepted. There will be no exceptions. If you cannot submit a hard copy in person, email your class partner to submit it for you on the day it is due. You should number each review, and specify the category for each film review. Your primary objective is to discuss ethical issues in each film you are reviewing, demonstrating that you have watched the film. You should incorporate concepts from the textbook and the lectures into your reviews. The length for each film should be approximately two pages double-spaced. I recommend doing all six film reviews, if you are trying for an A in the class.
Appendix B: Film List
You are to write reviews of 2 of these films.
These films come from many genres, including comedy. Many should be available in our library. Others should be available on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Google Play. Renting of some of them may be the only incidental cost of this class. Your job is to watch them – and then find a way to review them (one to two pages) that shows you’re seeing the ethical problems shown in the films. It should be partly fun – and partly serious education. Not all the suggested questions will be relevant to every movie in that category – and are provided only as suggestions to get you started.

Some films may appear in more than one category – but you can only count them one time. Total
Businesses and the behavior of individual employees, interns, underlings. Customer service ethics. Watch ONE from this category.
Write on: 1) What factors, other than money, are playing a role in employees’ behavior? 2) what real world parallels have you observed, in which unhappy employees might make or break (eventually) a business?

Ethical activism, ethics from outside the corporation. Watch ONE from this category. What roles do activists and journalists play in assuring that corporations are ethical – or at least not evil? How does an educated population fit into activism? College reproduces many aspects of broader society when it’s working – what are those? Why does the government view some activists as terrorists – and others as acceptable?
