  1. -- How does this sequence shift its visual design from realism to formalism, as it moves from the diner to the Swede's room? The diner is your everyday level of sound, lighting with just a bit of a threat from some hoods; everyone in the diner has a name and we can see their faces clearly, the dialogue is 'everyday'. Our boy jumps A LOT of picket fences when he moves from this world to the room of 'the Swede'. When he reaches 'the Swedes' room there is a distinct change in the lighting to big shadows and we never see the face of 'the Swede'. He is a mystery man who speaks and acts different
  2. Yes, I agree there is a huge amount of symbolism in this scene - even talking about being 'good with zippers' introduces a dangerous element and the men who agree to undo this for her are living dangerously.
  3. Note that for a lot of the film 'Leslie' is dressed in black and white showing the dichotomy of her true nature, and showing that there is something evil (dark) about her character.
  4. I agree, the woman who is clearly disturbed (as we are) tries to warn the mother (and the viewer) about the children's game. The church bells clearly spell impending doom and it is topped off by the shadow that falls across the little girl as she reads the 'Wanted for Murder' poster.
