serious freakout mode!

Ok, tomorrow morning (7 hours) i have this worksheet due on this orson welles film called citizen kane. Im having REAL difficulty answering her worksheet questions. Some include:

#3. Why does Welles like to use reverse angle shots? Describe one instance where it is used and why.
#4. Why does the camera approach its subjects through the roof or through windows? Explain how the camera angle through the roof reveals the theme or purpose of the film.
#5. Breifly describe two form cuts and how they might be interpreted.

Ok, i can answer part of these questions, but like in #3, why the fuck would i know why those angles are used? Shes really anal about having the answers really detailed, and this is 100/1000 points for me. Its being done so late since it was assigned wedneday, and i FINALLY found a copy of this movie in town, i couldnt find it anywhere. I searched for almost two days straight for this. She wont give me slack since basically i missed one class date, and it was pre-excused by her, but she failed to tell me we were watching the most important film of the semester, and so i told her that she didnt tell me about it, but naturally she thinks shes right, but she 'was nice enough to give me two days until tomorrow morning to finish it'. I doubt it will go well with her to give me another extention.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE someone help me, im on AIM quiksilverx181 or you can call me, just email me for my phone number [email protected] thanks!

welcome to the real world. My job requires me to do things at the last minute that I have no idea how to do also. Someday you'll thank your teacher for this life lesson.

On the same note, good for you for doing what you would do in the real world: do what you can and get people to help you with the rest. Unfortunately, I have not seen that movie in years and cannot help you. I also don't know shit about making movies. Lesson 2: people will give you advice without you asking for it. Just smile and say thank you and look forward to the day when you can be a useless asshole like me....I mean "them."

Sorry about this man. If I had a little more time I might be able to throw some stuff together, but I think you already had to turn it in. I've never seen this movie but took PLENTY of film classes in college, all the principles are the same. Good luck on it.

Sorry I didn't see this a couple hours ago, but check out the wikipedia entry on citizen kane... they make a few comments on the cinemetography and camera-work.
