Silence of the lambs analysis

  1. 1. Silence of The Lambs BY CHARLIE HADDON
  2. 2. The opening scene starts with a non diagetic music that builds a suspense. We see a long shot of a woman who is climbing up a hill using a rope, in a jumper and a bib. This gives us the idea that she is a policeman and we can tell this will be a horror as there is a dark forest behind her and low lighting.
  3. 3. The camera then cuts to see the woman now running through the forest. The Non-Diegetic struggle through her voice. We see her then running from a side on with what seems to be a handheld camera. There is a lot of jumpy movements as though we are running alongside her.
  4. 4. In this clip we see a FBI agent come up to Clarice and tell her that she Is wanted by the boss via diegetic dialogue. She then runs the other way. Clarice is shown on screen left so from this we can tell that all though she is getting told what to do she is still the more important character which is also unusual for a woman in the FBI as we associate it with men We then see a cut to the FBI agent just stare into the wilderness after she runs away. This is a confusing clip as the mid shot shows a concerned look on the mans face. It looks as though something bad is going to happen. This sets the suspense for the rest of the scene.
  5. 5. The camera then cuts to the top of a tree, it then tilts downwards and we are shown these four words. These words are all motivational. Things should hurt but in the end you will love it is the overall message. This means that in the FBI they have to go through what they need to in order to make it through. It could also be a sign for the rest of the film saying there will be ‘hurt, agony, pain’ and in the end they will ‘Love-It’ or will love be shown?
  6. 6. In this clip we see Clarice who has been talking to a man who is in a suit so we make the connection that he is in a high position within the FBI. We then see a mid shot of Clarice staring at something with a very intrigued look on her face. We then see the camera cut to the board of many paper cut outs. The camera pans and we see many different cut outs. ‘Bill Skins Fifth’ is a headline that we can see clearly. This shows us that ‘Bill’ is going to be a main character in the film. The fact he skins people shows it will be a horror.
