Chinatown - Sequence Analysis

by Michelle Langford

This s a sequence from Chinatown (Roman Polanski, 1974) used for a sequence analysis assignment. Students are asked to do a shot by shot breakdown and analyse the filmic techniques and explain how these contribute to the production of meaning. This clip is particularly useful for this due to the use of mirrors, lighting, edits on eye line looks, use of point of view and shot reverse shot structures.
