  1. The similarity that I saw was the two worlds in one, the safe and the unsafe. The clock to me symbolized inevitability, even while the credits rolled, the clock keeps going in the background. I also felt a little similarity in the safe playground and the safe asylum....the child going out into the real world, and the man leaving the asylum into the unsafe world. I have not seen this film and I am looking forward to it.
  2. I have seen this movie before so knowing how it ends gets in the way a little. Lydecker comes off as an elitist and intelligent (maybe too smart for his own good and under estimates the detective). McPherson, however, is clever and seems to let his suspects do the talking, looking for a slip up. This scene helps sets up the two personalities and also start and game between the two, leaving the watching wondering who will win, Can't wait to watch the film again....
  3. I personally didn't care for the POV, it felt a little gimmicky. The interaction with the driver didn't seem real to me and I am not sure if it was supposed to make you feel as though you personally had escaped, but it didn't come through to me . I did appreciate the camera shot from the barrel as he left it. think that was a better technique than using the POV.
  4. I seem to see a trend in these films, I see that we have what appears to be two worlds sharing the same space...you have the sleeping workers, the slow drips, the calm night, but the gunshots come from the house where apparently something sinister was occuring that the rest were unaware of.

It apperas more than just defence as she continues to empty the gun on the man as he lays on the ground. The symbol of death/darkness comes into play as the clouds cover the moonlight briefly and then light aga
  5. The train has passanger cars, but passengers are shown, just the two engineers who do not speak to each other. Nothing is said because nothing needs to be said. Two cars behind them could be travellers talking or dining, but all that is shown are the two men who are appear solemn in their jobs. I wonder if the train is used as a symbol it is on tracks and therefore cannot stray from it's course, somewhat single minded in it's purpose...going forward despite any issues.
  6. This was striking...the children making a rhyme out of horrific acts, the parents concerned for their safety as the kids play unaware. The bouncing of the ball against the wanted sign for a child murderer. There is the world of carefree children who are unaware of the horrible things that adults can do and then there's the adults who are more than aware of what's out there and live with that, but still try to shelter their children from it. The opening scene has the children playing in a courtyard, but the courtyard is barren and stark; no toys around, nothing but flat concrete void of any sym
