Welcome to this week in home video! Pick of the Week Kidnap What is it? Look, this Halle Berry vehicle was gone from theaters faster than you can say something that would take you a week or so to say, but it turns out the damn thing is actually a mostly terrific, nearly real-time ride. Berry gives a ferocious performance and leads a fairly believable chase whether it be in cars or on foot, and in addition to dodging cliched bullets along the way it leads to a satisfying ending too.
He nearly lost an eye while filming one of the greatest chase scenes in cinema history. Daniel Pearl was laying on a dolly track, filming an icon in the making chasing a helpless and terrified woman through dried and dead bushes and shrubs.
Pearl was working on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, history would reward him by declaring the film to be one of the best of its genre, applauding its composition and pacing. But why do we never seem to note the importance and perfection of the most thrilling scene in this storied film?
Why does a chase scene which lasts six full minutes consistently fail to be mentioned alongside the likes of Se7en and Point Break? The general consensus is that Se7en features the most celebrated foot chase in cinema. What makes this chase work is the cat and mouse aspect.
Our villain, John Doe, is constantly escaping the eyesight of Detective Mills. The antagonist controlled the entire tempo of this chase in addition to deciding its outcome.
The suspense delivered to the audience was two-fold: Beginning to end, TCM is a masterpiece of horror filmmaking. The frights are now notorious, a part of popular culture.
We remember the dinner table scene, the hitchhiker, the crash through the window, the… wait. We talk more about a stunt, albeit an effective one, than a chase scene that could easily stand up to Se7en?
Not today film fans. The chase happens at roughly the minute mark in the film and lasts around six minutes. At this point in the picture, Sally and Franklin have been separated from their group who have been hooked, sliced, diced, and put on icethe night is dark and hot.
At this moment, when our two surviving characters are at a breaking point, Leatherface and his chainsaw interrupt the eerie quiet. Se7en is a cat and mouse chase: The chase in TCM not only is narratively important, but it delivers a visceral experience by making the viewer a participant instead of a witness thanks to fluid and impressive dolly shots matching the pace the actors.
A trope in horror films is the victim being pursued by an assailant, usually masked. TCM never falls victim to this, instead, they create tension through density and false sanctuary.
The first obstacle Sally faces during her marathon of madness is nature itself. While attempting to evade Leatherface, Sally runs into thick bushes which grow increasingly dense as she battles her way through.
As she finds her way out, Leatherface cutting the dried branches with his chainsaw behind her, she runs into a home. One of two false sanctuaries she will find.Aug 23, · Pages.
