Film study 101 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

I had RM in the 1970's at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Remember his pacing from one side of the lecture stage to the other. Great story teller; not-so-great communicator with students. He was the "hot prof" at UW, however.

film108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

You will learn more about learning, hard-work,film, art, animation, writing and more from this hard-working, hard-thinking writer, professor and mentor. You will be lucky if you open up to the highly fascinating, thought out and intellectually stimulating lectures and challenges put forth in RM classes. School should challenge you. RM is amazing!

Film50 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

I didn't enjoy this class at all. It's supposed to be for nonmajors, but the professor lectures to us as though we're experts in film. At the end of each movie, he reads off a lecture that he pre-wrote which makes it seem scripted, boring, and pretentious.

Professor Merrits class on animation is one that I highly recommend! You have to pay attention and take good notes. It's not an easy A, but its worth the effort.

FILM108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Overrated! Stay away from him. He's detached from reality & awkward. Class is scripted and he never lets students talk. Fixated on obscure topics which only interest him. Animation was not what I expected. Treated us like idiots and blamed us for bad midterm grades. Just wants you to vomit up what he says to do well.

FILM1 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

One of the very best professors I have ever had: he knows it all, but when you talk to him he'll make every effort to make you believe that you do too.

FILM108 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

The most engaging, thought provoking and entertaining professor I had at Berkeley. A lot of people here criticized Film 50, which is a film class for non-majors, so it's intended to give an overview of the must-sees. His other classes on the other hand are really compelling, and he encourages independent research as well.

He's by far my favorite professor in the film department. I took his Film 50 class for non-majors and he made me want to be a film studies student.
