  • 1. “Natural Born Killers Analysis”
  • 2. Natural Born Killers lighting and costume The opening scene flickers in and out of black and white to color through out. this is very effective as we focus on the black and white scenes they seem to be an illusion which links to the thriller genre in the sense that it plays with your mind. Another example is when the opening scene flashes from black and white with low lighting ( which is highlighting the born killers in a very subtle way) to a red/orange tint. ( which is highlighting the victims) the scene is filmed in the red/ orange tint. Another point is when the camera is shooting the train sections just after the opening scene the colour usage in that could be indicating various emotions for the audience because of the connotations of the color red, this could be signifying that the lighting could be indicating fear or the signs of approaching danger.
  • 3. These three images clearly show the scenes which flick from black and white to colour which give the effect of an illusion which tricks with your mind which relates back to the thriller genre.
  • 4. Costume During the first few minuets I focused on the two main characters costumes. One male the other being female, the costumes signified there characters as killers. Firstly the male costume related to a cowboy which fits in with his surrounding as the opening scene is based in a bar in the desert. The male charcter is represented in pink tinted glasses with a scruffy greasy ponytail hair style this represent the character as being rough and untamed which helps the audience relate to his background throughout the film. On the other hand the female character is dress in very minimal clothing this indicated that the character is trying to portray the idea across to the audience that she is sexy to add to her costume she has tattoos and heavy makeup with a thick layer of red lipstick. Her hair style gives of the impression that her character is quite childish although mixed with the other features of her outfit connotes to her being quite slutty.
  • 5. Cowboy style for the male character whilst the female character is portrayed to be sexy in the minimal clothing red lipstick and pigtails.
  • 6. props and setting The setting is made evident at the beginning that it is based in a desert like surrounding. The main action during the beginning sections of the film take place within a bar on the outskirts of a dirt road. various props are used to indicate the storyline, a newspaper with 666 deaths on it draws attention to the potential narrative of what the film may be focused around hinting and relating back to the thriller genre. Although the males tinted glasses can be noted as costume it is also a prop in the way that it is displaying the type of character he could be.
  • 7. Here are two key images which make a statement through out the opening scene of “natural born killers”
  • 8. Facial Expression/ Body language through out the first scenes there is a drastic change in expressions and postures through the characters. For example when the shootings start to happen the expression and posture of the ones being shot change from cheerful to terrified, some put their hands up in fear to show surrender this signifies there is a hierarchy and the ones with guns are the bosses connoting to badies. meanwhile The female main character finds it amusing whilst the others are afraid this also shows who the dominate characters our this is made clear through Her body language which comes across as very confident; she dances with the strangers in a way that is meant to be sexy which links back to her costume which also connoted a sexy attitude.
  • 9. In this image the body langue used is suspicious and rushed you can tell this from the reflection of the drivers eyes in the wind-mirror, one hand on the driving wheel and the passenger looking behind In this photo the body image and posture looks proud as if they have achieve something and our not worried or acting suspicious.
