    ways Meirelles and Lund chose to express Li’l Ze’s need to be a well-respected superior figure to every other gang member in community can be seen in the camera angles and the blocking of his character in the scene. When Li’l Ze is confronted by Goose, one of the older hoodlums that steals Li’l Ze’s money, Li’l Ze is filmed from an over the shoulder high angle making it look as if the viewer is in Goose’s position and is looking down on Li’l Ze.

    The audience gets a sense that the film was filmed in one go creating a logical coherence between shots.
