Lecture 4: Instant impact

These are my lecture notes from todays lecture, we looked at the opening scenes of 2 experimental films, ‘Eraserhead’ and ‘Last of England’

‘Eraserhead’ – David Lynch

‘Last in England’ – Derek Jarman

As we were looking at impact I tried to think of the last film where the opening scene affected my mood and evoked a feeling, it’s not particularly arty, but it isn’t the usual narrative technique.

‘Instant Swamp’ – Satoshi Miki (watch up to 2 min 20)

Also Sucker Punch has a gripping opening scene that uses colour, music and sound to evoke emotion.

‘Sucker Punch’ – Zach Snyder
