How does the editing impact the film?
Although I have chosen to do the scene where the character’s first meet Roberto, as many creators
do, a lot of the techniques used in this one scene are pretty much the same in every sequence.
The reason I have chosen this one, is because it truly captures the awkwardness Jim Jarmusch
wanted us to feel as we are spending time and getting personal with these three men. Just as if we
were in that prison cell with them.
I know with that scene, it was just a forty second clip with no changes within the shot, but with this
film, that is the editing. The camera lingers with the characters letting us feel closer to them. Even in
scenes that appear unnecessary to the story like the odd encounter with a character who we never
see again.
But back to the chosen scene, played out in one long shot, the camera remains steady in between
the two sitting inmates as this new character makes an attempt in introducing and conversing with
his new roommates. Almost as if we are a character living with them in that world.
Being an example of Jim Jarmusch’s “minimalist approach” in filmmaking, we are sat with these
characters, experiencing the awkward tension with them as there are no cuts, no jumps to the next
relevant action, only lingering for that tension.
Again here as Zack and Laurette are in a dispute. Whilst Laurette is having her tantrum, for where you
would usually experience shot after shot for tension editing, here there is none of that. We are sat in
one position, only watching the actions take place.
In conclusion, the editing allows us to relate to these characters as we experience their situations
with them.
