"You have written a thoughtful critique of this documentary film and your thoughts are clear and well-organized. The essay interested me and you made good use of specific details and descriptions from the film to illustrate your points. The essay does need a round of proofreading to address grammar and punctuation issues. For example, you should only use quotation marks within your paper for direct quotes; they should not be used to emphasize non-quoted words, terms, or phrases. There are a few instances where the wrong form of a word, or an unclear word, was used, and addressing those will strengthen the paper. You might also want to provide more of a conclusion to the essay. What is the main idea that you'd like the reader to take away from reading your critique? Finally, it appears that you are using MLA style to cite sources throughout the essay; be sure to include a works cited page!"
