A New Beginning for Opening Shots?

dark-knight-opening-shot.jpgIt appears that Scanners’ Jim Emerson has a renewed interest in his fantastic Opening Shots Project, after a hiatus of more than a year for the series. In February he’s published entries on Shotgun Stories, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 2, and The Producers.

These short essays, with their microscopic attention to detail and narrow scope, are always insightful and instructive, and they’re generally more enlightening than the vast majority of film criticism.

I’ve even tried a few myself, including on Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Bleu, Atom Egoyan’s Calendar, and Christopher Nolan’s Memento.
