Fight Club (Analysis) <br />Opening Sequences are there to establish enigma, engage the audience and establish main characters. In the opening sequence of Fight Club we are taken on a visual trip from the deepest cell of the characters brain, where fears develop, going out from a pore on his skin and following his sweat down to his mouth where we can see a gun being hold (by someone else!) into his mouth. The lighting in this part is dark in shades of black, dark blue and grey. When the sequence starts, there is classic background music which then changes to a fast pace techno music which catches the audience attention. The first enigma is reached, now, we ask ourselves: What is going on? What is this meant to be?Voice-Over Narration is used to establish the character and engage the audience we hear him say "
...with a gun in your mouth you speak only in vowels..."
which informs us that he has experiences these kind of situations before, and when he wonders "
...I wonder when was the last time he cleaned his gun..."
, this lets us know that he is not scared or excited which goes back to the idea that he has experienced it before. So summing up, now we already know that he probably is the main character (or one of the main characters), that he is not scared of his life and that he is in big trouble for some reason but what we do not know is why.So the main point of an opening sequence is t answer some question and to create others to keep the audience interested. <br />
