Post your favorite movie clips, but with the caveat that you must offer criticism, analysis, or discussion of some movie clips that have come before yours. Watch your fellow members' clips. Specifically, look for any of the following within the clips, and try and offer insights in to what you have seen, with regard to the following:

- Use of color and color palettes
- Compositional separation
- Mise-en-scène
- Alternative stories or metaphors within reflective surfaces
- Acting
- Underlying subtext
- Confined spaces, voyerustic views
- The withholding of data, through obstructed views
- Note where the director has put questions in your mind about things that you see
- Continuity, or lack of
- The use of pillow shots
- Choice of camera angles
- Choice of camera movements, and what those movements symbolize
- Overarching themes
- Soundtracks, and the possible use of metaphor within song lyrics
- Sound effects, for atmosphere and mood
- Use of slow motion

Anybody may begin. Post a clip you really like. Please provide the title of the movie and the director if you can. Please limit clips to five minutes or less if possible. However, there are no hard and fast rules. Anybody may then post their own analysis, critique, or discussion regarding the clip, and post their own clip. When someone has posted regarding your clip, make an attempt to defend your choice, or learn from it.

If you're unfamiliar with any of the concepts listed above, feel free to ask, or use google.

Well, this isn't a clip like what has been requested, but it is so relevant to the conversation, and so utterly fascinating, that it should be watched. Here it is:

An extremely interesting comparison between two different versions of the same film. A very interesting watch for filmmakers.

This isn't a clip from a movie, but rather a 2 minutes short film.

Certainly the film contained a lot of heavy handed symbolism, but given its tongue in cheek nature, that's okay. I immediately noticed the YOU'RE _IRED coffee mug, and replayed that section to see how the boss's hand covered the blank spot and then revealed it seconds later.

Thank you for sharing. Overall, for what it was, it was interesting and funny, but I can't get too excited about it within the context of this thread and its two minutes of very unsubtle employment of various techniques, and find it hard to discuss here, precisely because everything is obvious and in your face.

Now, here's a clip that I'm posting: Equinox Flower, 1958, Yasujiro Ozu: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wI6LfigwYA

Here's another clip that is ripe for analysis: Let Me In, 2010, Matt Reeves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2yBH6lhRBOQ

If you've seen this movie, you should be able to find some nuggets in the scene I just mentioned.

This is something I know you'll like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4S03Aw5HULU

I lack the time to write much about it, as I'm on the run right now, but this little piece of surrealism had more of an impact on me than Un chien andalou or L'Âge d'Or.

This is the one and only piece of film that ever managed to elicit an emotional response of fear and utter and complete "wrongness" from me. I didn't sleep the night I first saw it as the pictures would not leave me alone.

I started watching it and it looks interesting, but I'm out of time right now and will have to return to it, hopefully within 8 hours or so. The reason I'm replying now, is because I want to stress how much I'd like to see discussion, in addition to people coming in and dropping a link and then disappearing. So, I guess what I'm saying is, please stick around for discussion.
