IN YOUR OWN WORDS—DISCUSS how a popular cultural analyst (using a feminist critical approach) might analyze the role of that women play in “Unforgiven?” AS A PLACE TO START—you might think about the social situation of the women in the town. Are they empowered [or not] within the town’s social and legal structure?
IN YOUR OWN WORDS–describe the Marxist “Base”/”Superstructure” model. DISCUSS all of the components found in the base and superstructure. In other words, what economic and societal elements are found IN both the base and superstructure? Next—show a specific economic “mode” (and for this you must use Feudalism as your base) working within and affecting your “Base”/”Superstructure” model. Describe how the economic mode of feudalism would affect both the base and the superstructure. FOR EXAMPLE—What kind of class relations would you find in a feudalistic society? What kind of ART would a society with a feudalistic base produce? Which class would be supported by the art in a feudalistic society? [If they could have made movies in feudalistic times, would the movies have been more supportive of the peasants or the lords?]
IN YOUR OWN WORDS and using a Marxist critical approach, analyze the role of the economy and legal system as shown in the film “Unforgiven.” In other words, how would a Marxist theorist analyze the way Capitalism works in the society of the town? FOR IDEA STARTERS–What are the economic and legal relations between the saloon owner AND the prostitutes? What are the owner/worker relations? What is the role of the sheriff? WHO does the sheriff protect, and how does he enforce his protection?
