This semester’s theme is “Secret Agent.” I’m excited about this theme because I enjoy the aesthetics of similarly themed content. Although I have my problems with some of the misogynistic tropes of the genre, there is a lot of room to work with creatively. My favorite movie with the theme is actually a satire, OSS 117. It follows the traditional aesthetic style of the genre while also poking fun at some of the stereotypes often found in spy movies.
Perhaps my favorite part about spy movies is the music. From the unforgettable theme of James Bond movies to the more fast paced track of the Bourne series, you can’t go wrong. I think I can have quite a bit of fun with the music and the numerous costume styles associated with the theme. It’s going to be unpredictable fun seeing where this theme takes shape through my work and the work of my classmates.
