Hicks used this as the introduction to the film to give us a view into David's life and also him at the lowest point of his life. Hicks uses David's speech pattern to show how hard it really is for David and also by lighting, music and sounds.

Now, there were no street lights at all, and barely anything to call an alleyway. Buildings were burnt, whole sides taken out, and the buildings gutted, leaving nothing but rusted metal and scrap pieces of paper. Boots pattered along the abandoned sidewalk with stern purpose.
