Love him--I took this cause it fulfilled an Eng requirement, and I was interested in film/history and knew little about both. McKenna knows his shit and is extremely entertaining. I learned a lot about history, politics, and the basics of film seemingly effortlessly cause I like listening to him speak. He is super-liberal and all that jazz, but it's cool cause he doesn't try to push his opinions; he just wants to present things so that you think about them. I agree with the other reviewer--I am much more skeptical of what is presented to me now and more aware of making my own mind up about it. That's a cool thing to get from a class. Right on, McKenna, you crazy mofo.
