Ellouise badger’s get carter quiz

  1. 1. Ellouise Badger’s Get Carter Quiz 1) Name a British aspect of the film. 70s fashion, accents, locations, e.g. Bingo hall, races. 2) What editing technique is used as Jack watches the film with is niece in it? Crosscutting between Jack and Glenda, building up suspense, so we wonder what he will do to her. 3) How is the film nihilistic? Carter’s world is remorseless, lacks meaning and presents a harsh uncaring reality. 4) Who was Frank’s mistress? Margaret, who is later killed by Jack. 5) Why could we argue that the film isn’t a true crime film? The narrative builds up slowly and some scenes are more focused on drama and character rather than action. 6) What are the five areas you need to have notes on about the film? Genre conventions, narrative structure, representation (people, places and issues), themes, messages and values, key characters.
  2. 2. What is an enigmatic start? Questions are raised from the beginning, rather than giving us information straight away. What camera angle is used when Jack cries watching the film with his niece in it? A close-up connoting his strong emotions and therefore suggests his character changing. How does Jack fight crime with crime? After realising his brother’s death was not an accident or suicide, he begins to kills anyone who was involved. What type of narrative is typical of crime films and means you find out information when the protagonist does? Investigative narrative Why are there lots of two-shots used in the film? Each conversation adds to the chain of events. These shots also give us important dialogue which are full of meaning and key information.
