  1. How does the opening of Frenzy differ from the opening of The Lodger? "Frenzy" starts with a peaceful and scenic overview of the River Thames. It almost feels like watching a travelogue.

Based on the sounds and images, I would think this film would be about someone's psychological problems.The way that it focuses on the woman's eye and zooms in, it's as if we enter her mind. The images give it a very science fiction vibe. The music sounds threat
