dc.description.abstract This justification examines the rhetorical significance of the film Pump Up the Volume using Karlyn Kohrs Campbell's Critiques of Contemporary Rhetoric and Alasdair Maclntyre's Theory of Rhetorical Conversation and Moral Action. Before drawing conclusions about the rhetorical impact of the film itself, I will briefly describe the film, and apply Campbell's and Maclntyre's methods. I will also define and explain "Generation X" and find similarities between the film and the generation. Finally, I will examine some tools for future research. By examining these methods and artifacts, I will underscore the importance of the rhetoric of film and the impact it had on a generation. This study examines the importance of film as rhetoric and Pump Up the Volume's impact as a rhetorical tool.
