  1. I actually thought the 1st person perspective was quite successful... and for the same reasons it's successful in video games. It connects the viewer to the action of the story, but keeps you from being too knowing at the same time. Sure you could say that vicariously escaping prison makes the opening exciting, but it's also not being able to see this man that gives us a thrill. Does he look like a criminal? Who is he? We learn his identity and his crime, but DID he (did WE) kill the wife? The POV camera work keeps us moving around and is disorienting. What the heck is going on? Well..
  2. I was completely surprised by this opening, but not by the murder. Plenty of films start with someone being offed. The difference here is that it isn't a whodunit, it's a whydunit. Maybe the workers only heard what went on, but we saw exactly who killed this man. We saw that she did it with intent and hatred. What pulls me in (and over to Netflix to add The Letter to my queue), is that I need to know the motivation behind this heinous act. That and I'm a sucker for a dangerous lady.
