Q. Do I have to cite a movie if I'm only mentioning the name?
In my paper, I say "We have come to know about smuggling through movies like "The French Connection", "Traffic", and "American Gangster." Also, the movie titles should be in quotations, right?
Thank you for the question about citing a movie.
- You do not need to cite a movie if you are only mentioning the title.
- You DO need to cite the movie if you use ideas, themes, or quotes expressed in the film.
- Movie titles should be in italics, not placed in quotation marks for APA.
We have come to know about smuggling through movies like The French Connection, Traffic, and American Gangster.
