This is just a prompt to help guide you with your writing; you do not need to answer all of these questions. If you want to write about a different aspect of the readings and film, you can do so, but make sure that your response pertains to the film and readings. Also, be sure to include a quote from the reading in your DBP: What do you make of Dope and its depiction of minorities? Like Malcolm suggests at the end of the film, would you have taken the film differently if he were a white character? In the Sydney Morning Herald, Jake Wilson writes of the film, “Rather than judging his characters for turning to crime, Famuyiwa makes society the target of his anger; implying that in an unequal world, even a kid as bright as Malcolm has little chance of succeeding by honest methods alone.” What does this mean, and how does it relate to the reading for this film? Does Dope turn “gangsta’ cinema” or the so-called ”ghetto film” on its head with the portrayal of these teens?

 

NOTE: The discussion is just 150 words and try to answer as much as possible from the questions, relating them to the readings as well.
