Watching Documentary.

Thomas sutcliffe means when he says "Films need to seduce their audience into long term commitment. while there are many types of seduction, the temptation to go for instant arousal is almost irresistible" -going straight in from the dramtic opening so the audience can be attached to the start of the movie  or you can slowly seduce the audience from the start of the movie as it will also hook them .

According to director Jean Jacques Beineix says the risks of instant arousal is that if you start strong in the opening then the audience will expect much more throughout the movie so it better to start with something small to build tension during the movie.

'A good beginning must make the audience feel that it dosent know nearly enough yet and at the same time make sure that it doesent know too little because if you give away to much in the opening ... you want the audience to know whats gonna happen and if you give to little they may lose interest quickly.

Stanley Kaufmann describes as the classic opening- began with establish shot of new york city then close up to a building then to a window then pass an office ...were the thing was taking place or the occupation of the hero.  It works because its establish normality.

kyle coopers title sequence to the film Seven is so effective because he wants to wake the audience up  it sets the tone, obsessive phycotic nature of the film and the main character and it foreshadows of what is gonna happen next.

'Favourite trick of film Noir" means they put the end at the begining then it goes back in time as thats the trick.

The way Supense is created in The Shining is that the way the camera is placed above "birds eye view" tells us that the car is going in the wrong direction as it driving to an isolated, dark area. The music is also tell us that the car is heading to danger.
