Made in 2000
Title Sequence establishes the thriller genre through the Noir lighting at the beginning of the film. It also is established through the screeching of the blackboard.
Director: Terry Winsor
Key word - Primeval - Pre-historic
This is used as an example in Essex boys as Jason is dominated by his primative instincts.
Contains Noir Lighting to establish the genre straight away.
First scene is set in a garage which symbolises the thriller because it is a clostrophobic space.
We also have the shot of Sean Bean character through the dirty window which portrays to use he is a dodgy, detached and cold character as we look through the dirty smerted screen.
In this scene we have the wet shiny streets which help to show the thriller as this is a classic technique when showing whether or not a film is a thriller or not.
Another way is the vanishing point which is used through the tunnel which symbolises a scope on a gun which can also show that he is driving towards trouble. It also shows us the moral darkness of the scene with the tunnel.
The chiaroscuro lighting is used when the main character Billy Reyonlds driving Sean Bean's character to his destination with the white stripes which symbolise he has only just got out of prison.
The film also uses a voiceover which helps to build a relationship with the audience and to help us to know what he is thinking.
The use of a white van is used in classic thrillers. It makes us what to know what is in it; we see that something terrible is kept in them so we want to know what is in it and creates the classic suspence.
How the landscape reflects characters and their morality.
As we can see in the film that Jason is isolated with his detached personality from the way he tries to keep himself to himself. He also doesn't have any moral boundries which helps us to understand that his world is considered as dangerous.
