  1. 1. The POV tracking shot of the boys walking caused the viewer to feel their dread and anxiety of being called to the admin's office. We could see the admin through their eyes, and he looked pretty intense and upset. 2. The technique added feeling to the scene. H forced us into their position, and possibly, made us sympathize with at least one of the young men. 3. What connections (visual techniques, images, motifs, themes) do you notice between films that came before this (The Pleasure Garden, The Lodger) and a film that came after it (The Ring)?

The opera glasses reminded of LB Jefferies spying. The girl with the curl rebuffing the gentleman reminded me of Max de Winter's attitude to Mrs. Van Hopper's question of his having unpacked yet. We also saw the zoom on the pickpocket. 2. Absolutely I see elements that will continue to appear throughout H's art. 3. The lack of spoken dialogue wasn't consequential. H was aware of what audience needed to comprehend every nuanc
