Those of you enrolled in an undergraduate – or possibly a graduate level – film studies course can rest a little easier with the arrival of the Film School Thesis Statement Generator, which automatically spits out a thesis for your paper based on a single criteria: the title of the film. For example, if you were going to write an essay on John Cassavetes crime film The Killing of a Chinese Bookie your thesis could be:
“Killing of a Chinese Bookie dichotomizes the achievement of a state of wholeness through its fluid identification of the viewer.”
Working on Tarkovsky’s Solaris?
“Through the poetic use of tableaux, Solaris demystifies established notions of the star system.”
The generator’s one flaw is its limited number of potential theses so there’s a good chance you’d be writing the same paper as one of your classmates, whose lack of imagination, ambition, or level of intoxication prevents them from creating their own bullshit thesis.
Still, in a pinch, it’s better than nothing.
