Shot #2 is a medium close up shot of Giant. Behind him are two men peeking from the stalls. This foreshadows the trouble Giant might be facing. The director uses the division of surface in order to show the conflict between the men and Giant. The focus of the shot shifts from Giant to the men and follow focus as they grab Giant. Shot #3 is a medium shot, more like a two shot, of all four people. The 4th shot is an establishing shot of the on-going show in the bar. The red lighting of the overall area gives the audience a feeling of separation between what is occupying Bleek and what is happening behind the scenes with Giant. Shot 5 and 9 are medium shots continuing from the shot #3. The shots track the movements of the bad guys dragging Giant out of the bar to the back alley. The director makes use of slow motion in order to put more emphasis into the intensity of the sequence. He also makes use of color mixing between the red light and the natural light along…

    I feel that I order to capture and grasp the idea that the two men are challenging gravity while figthing most of the shot (1:58 – 2:12) have to be long in order to emphasis how the background and charcters are spinning and the effects are, for example from 1:12 to 1;14 you can see the long shot of the two men fighting but the thing that seems to be quite insignificant is the gun that dropped also react to the shift in gravity and sticks to the ceiling, the attention to detain from Nolan in this…

    Medium close up. This shot is exactly the same as shot number 2, except that it can be categorized as a reaction shot from Ginger as she slows down and realizes how frantic she was; however, she soon aggressively speeds things up again that ultimately leads to fear and anxiety from Jason. These last three shots are rather slow placed relative to the rest of them because tensions are low, the scene is still relatively calm, and Ginger’s transformation into the monstrous feminine is not yet…
