  • The Godfather

    The godfather mentions the parallel editing of the film's climax between the baptism and the execution of the opposing Mafia families. View this scene and discuss how collage and timing both play an important role in establishing the metaphors this scene conveys. Bear in mind that the parallel editing used here was not part of the originally planned production sequence. Coppola decided to use this technique while the film was in post-production.

        Hitchcock pioneered that, didn't he?

          Someone who starts their first post on a forum with a cut'n'paste without any further explanation is most likely a troll, a spammaer or both. Whilst indulging the post and exploring the answers might be fun, it is most likely a waste of time. In fact, if you simply put the opening post into a google search, you will find some essays that do a pretty good job of answering the question.

              So, I agree with some of the previous points. I am all for helping someone who is studying cinema and I think that the shared resources of the site should be used for that purpose- assuming it is British cinema. And also assuming they have the courtesy to frame a proper approach, otherwise it is, as Stoneageman suggests, a time waster.
