At the moment i am analysing the movie “se7en” with Peter Masons’ “Three Act Structural Diagram” technique. While watching the movie intensively i made also notes of some really cool camera shots, which i will present in a sooner post.
In se7en i really like that the audience is constantly learning something. Here an original passage of the script:
Detective Sumerset says: At the precinct, Sunday nights, a public crime prevention course is offered. The very first thing they teach is that you should never, ever scream “help.”Always scream “fire,” because people don’t want to get caught up in anything. But, a fire…that’s an evening’s entertainment. They come running.
