Last week I started a summer school course here at the University of Idaho. I figure since it would only cost $35 to take a University Course, I should take advantage of it while I'm here. So, I'm take a History/Film Course on the films of Oliver Stone! It's not nearly as easy as that Sports in Film class at Chico, but I'm enjoying it just as much.
We are watching a variety of films, from JFK & Platoon, to Wall Street & his new film W. Oliver Stone is such a controversial film maker and has made some great movies. I'm not so sure his history is 100% correct, but then again when is history 100% correct. Why not at least enjoy the experience huh? Tonight we are watching Born on the 4th of July, I'm really excited about this one I remember really liking it when I was a younger.
The down side to all of this, VERY long days. work for 8 hours then class for 3 hours, then reading and writing for the class. Good thing its only 4 weeks!
