    I need some help, I'm studying AS Film and I'm stuck on the last section of the exam called Comparative Study. My teacher has taught us 3 Days of the Condor and Captain America: Winter Soldier. I have no confidence for this section as they are conspiracy thrillers which are difficult to write about.

    So first make sure you pick the right question if you don't pick the right sections based on your filmed you're screwed. Then you need to define the key words in the question with a opening paragraph for example if the questions talks about narrative just define narrative and say if they play a big role in your films. Then you need to start your mirco analysis find a scene that LINKS to a question explain how it links to the question then explain how the micros show this. Do this for both films. Next do the same but have a counter argument if the question says "how far does" or explain another word in the question and finds scenes that link to that. For the conclusion have a overall scope of the question explaing key points and add detail about some context or your own thoughts to the question.

    This is how I layout my essays, hopefully it helps.
