The opening of the film is a sequence from the film-within-a-film featuring a POV shot as a slasher killer views several sexual scenes: two women dancing topless, a woman in a bra, with a blanket over her lower half moving her hand under the blanket for about 3 seconds, and a couple having sex, culminating in a shower scene where the prowler attacks a nude woman with a knife. Breasts are visible throughout the sequence. The shower scene is replayed several times during the course of the movie as the film creators try to record the perfect scream.

Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


1. The video begins with a small climax. The director grabs the audience’s attention from the beginning. The camera peeps outside the windows of each house through the subjective lens of a abnormal murderer, then sneaks into the house and begins to murder a woman taking a bath. The woman screams. This is obviously a wanton imitation of Hitchcock’s psycho. Then the audience found that this was actually a film that had been made. Terry, a sound effect scissors, couldn’t help laughing at the fake cry of a woman. This kind of “play in play” is shown again in the director’s future double (pink murder night, body double), and the plays are typical B-level horror films. I’m afraid this is the director’s mockery of a series of shoddy B-level horror films in the 1970s?

2. In doubles, the director discusses the illusion of doubles in film and reality, while this video discusses the illusion of sound in film and reality. The director not only deliberately imitates Hitchcock and Anthony O’nei’s masterpiece blow up is also the source of inspiration for the director.

3. In the paragraph where Terry goes out to collect sound, the lens constantly changes the perspective. Terry himself, the sound instrument, the surrounding environment, the objects (people and animals) to which the sound is collected form a lens clip similar to the “food chain” for the relationship between these affairs. While collecting animal sound samples, the director also added his usual screen segmentation expression. Different screen segmentation techniques have been reflected in this video, direct, indirect, near and far, and so on.

In addition to screen segmentation, the director’s signature techniques have been embodied many times in this video, including long shot and top shot techniques.

Story attribute

The director asked Terry to collect some wind material. During the collection process, he accidentally collected the sound of a car accident. The car fell into the river, and Terry saved a woman Sally in the car. Later, at the hospital, he learned that the other person in the car was governor Mike, who might be elected the next president leon. The assistant governor asked him to hide the fact that he saw the girl because Sally was a prostitute and they tried to cover up the scandal. Terry carefully checked the recording and identified it by sound. He thought it was not an accident, but a murder. Kapoor, a photographer, also took a group of pictures of the accident and sold them to a magazine at a high price. Terry bought the magazine, cut out the pictures one by one, then turned them into film format, and added sound materials to make the accident “repeat”. He was surprised to find a gunfire in the picture when the tire burst.

It turned out that Sally was appointed by another candidate to let the professional killer wait for the opportunity to do something for the car, and then let Kapoor take a picture of the governor with a prostitute. Unfortunately, the killer killed the governor by mistake.

Terry and Sally got Kapoor’s original film, hoping to broadcast it on TV through the hand of TV reporter Frank. But it was bugged by a smart killer, who disguised himself as frank and Sally trading tapes and films, and Terry placed a monitor on Sally, who could have an insight into everything about Sally trading at any time. But when Terry predicted that it was a killer and wanted to attack Sally, he could only identify the location by his voice. Finally, when the American people celebrated independence day, Sally was killed by a killer. Terry came late and killed the killer.

4. When the killers in the video commit murder, including the killers in the previous “play in play”, they use the subjective lens of the killers for many times to make the audience more clear about the criminal process.

5. In the editing room, the director used a continuous rotation of 9 360 degrees in an hour. The direction of the hero in each moving lens is uncertain. It can be seen that the editing work is complex. The director has also used rotating lens in many videos, but at most it is one circle, and this time it took nine circles.

6. The top shot lens in the film is very high, even in the city. The highest time was when the hero drove to pursue the sound position and shot the car through a tall building. The height of this shot is reminiscent of Hitchcock’s “north by Northwest” in which the hero escaped from the United Nations headquarters.

7. Terry drives to pursue the direction of sound. Among them, the director uses the synthetic effect of the fake location of the rear window of the car in Hitchcock films and other old films in the 1950s and 1960s. Hitchcock can shoot real scenes in his masterpiece family conspiracy, but he is still keen on the old film model. virtue. Parma also followed this approach and used this fake location in the later doubles.

8. After Sally’s death, Terry can only miss Sri Lanka through Sally’s voice materials. Sally’s scream before her death was used as a voice in the bathroom murder of the “play in the play” at the beginning of the film. This voice is perfect. Sally’s cry lingered in Terry’s mind and became Terry’s permanent pain.

9. John, the actor of the hero John Travolta showed his best performance in the film (I personally think so). Instead of relying solely on his fiery dance to attract the audience, he perfectly presents the hero, a pessimistic figure who is struggling to find the truth, on the screen through exquisite performance. He also worked with the director on “Carrie” before.

The video can be said to be a pure Brian virtue. Palma’s films, in addition to the director’s signature techniques, are fully displayed in the video. Most of the cast members are also the director’s old partners, wife Nancy Allen went into battle again. They had previously cooperated in “witch Carrie”, “home movies” and “dressed to kill”. This is their last cooperation. The two divorced two years later/ John plays the killer John Lithgow previously worked with the director in obsession and later played the leading role and multiple roles in raising Cain/ Danny who plays Kapoor Dennis Franz is even more powerful. He worked with the director in the fury, razor edge and later doubles/ Producer George George litto is also the producer of infatuation and razor edge/ Pino, a famous Italian soundtrack player Don agio is Brian virtue. Parma’s Royal soundtrack.
