  1. 1. In The Lodger, we are directly introduced to a scene of a young girl screaming in fear accompanied with a scary intense tone of music. In Frenzy, we are introduced in such a "traveling" way. It starts off with a pan shot of the Thames River, Then the shot gets closer to the crowd gathering and listening to the speaker who talks about getting rid of waste and toxic in the river, so in the Lodger we are introduced with fear and uncertainty, but in Frenzy we were introduced to the place where the murder happened. Another difference is how the victims were introduced. In Frenzy, a naked girl wa

  3. 1. The opening scene is lighthearted and has a really lovely atmosphere. Melanie and Mitch seems to be flirting with each other, as they searching for and talking about "love birds". Mitch also flirt and go along with Melanie, knowing that she's not the store clerk but still tried to talk and make funny conversations with her. 2.

Saul's title design is also splendid. He designs the title by using the transition of the horizontal lines, as well as splitting and distorting some text and letters in the opening scene. The horizontal lines could represent Marion's transition to sin and she received the consequences of her sin after she was killed in the shower scene, her blood is cleanse and washed away with water. The splitting and distorting
  5. 1. The line is used as an inside joke. In fact, they do look familiar as both of them are well known actors and actress, the faces that the audiences will immediately recognize.

The matchbook draws Eva's attention into Cary's character in a romantic, seductive way. After Cary hand her the matchbook, she used it to light up the cigarette and suddenl
  6. 1. We see Novak's face and her eyes glaring around. deciding whether or not she will fall into the trap of desire and obsession. Then, there's a close up shot on her eyes (red) and a circular shape figure that comes out from her eyes drawing our attention, maybe she could have fall into that obsession, or maybe she is drawing a man into "the obsession and desire" I think the film is about the obsession and the desire for women in the lives of men. I believe we are seeing from a man's perspective in the opening scene. As the shot was close up to the eyes of Kim Novak, the color of the shot chan
