Presentation Transcript

  1. Film is reversed to assist with the surrealism-a repetition of the effect to create a dream like world.

  2. Walking out of the fog (repetition of this image)

  3. Fog Tropes begins on the sound track.

  4. Creepy gliding of dead body. The use of some wheeled device, which is outside the Frame creates an eerie quality to the scene. (the makeup of blood looks like the little girl had a rough day with the finger paint-why so fake?)

  5. The beautiful lake house memory of an earlier scene is placed into the nightmare. To the audience it seems that Teddy’s memories are all disturbed. We do not Yet realise that the dead children actually belong in this scene. The body looks like a doll in this shot-intentional??? Why would Scorsese use a dummy instead of the little girl actor???? Is this another cost cutting caper like the el cheapo C.G.I. of the storm at the beginning of the film? What’s his point?? Why so fake??

  6. Helping Rachel drown her children.

  7. What’s the big idea with the makeup? Looks like red paint that has been applied in a child like manner. Why so fake??

  8. Classic horror. Nothing spookier than a dead girl staring up from the water!

  9. He wakes up but the nightmare is still going.

  10. The wife enters. Is she back from the dead? Or is the dream still going? (it’s a dream within a dream)

  11. The visual composition is beautiful here with the running rain water reflected onto the door and it looks like the running of blood against the red paint.

  12. Teddy’s dead wife is helping him on the case by letting him know Laeddis is still there. Soft romantic piano music gives a hint of romance.

  13. He wakes abruptly as they are about to kiss. The dream is over. He is now truly awake.

  14. This nightmare sequence is full of the images from memories or happenings from different parts of the film up until this point. The audience have to piece it together as they watch. The nightmare gives the first view of Laeddis (the audience still think he is another person.) Scorsese plays with the editing of both sound and visuals Within this sequence. He separately plays both sound and image backwards at various points to create an unnerving and surreal effect of the dream. Because it is a dream he can construct disturbing scenarios to demonstrate the disturbed nature of Teddy’s mind. Music is used to create suspense. Sound effects are played backwards to add to the tension. The audience recognise the landscape of Teddy’s dream from previous scenes and flashbacks in the film but the mixing up of some ideas creates confusion for the audience and they have to work it out. Scorsese plays with the audience’s emotions and appears to give them knowledge of Teddy’s predicament. The appearance of Dolores creates confusion at first as we think Teddy is awake. So for a moment we think that perhaps she might have come back to life and was hiding on Ashecliffe all along. Again Scorsese opens up different narrative possibilities-the hunt for Laeddis continues.
