Students actually had many concerns about this course and it is due only to Professor Leonard's remarkable popularity (often called 'outstanding' by students) that there weren't more complaints or problems. A number of students were clearly confused about course expectations in terms of the nascent cinema program vs. more mainstream English. Some also cited a lack of organization as a problem. This course focused on the Vietnam War in film and as the course title and description are more general quite a few students did not know this going into the course and so some were confused or felt out of place. Others simply felt the material was too brutal. Nevertheless, between those students who would willingly listen to Professor Leonard teach anything at all, those interested in cinema (minor program pending), and those who 'got' the course most were happy regardless and found it a valuable experience.
