Friday (3/4/11) 2:41pm - ... wherein Peter writes some notes about The Killing.

The noir cast has been watching noir movies lately, to prepare for the noir show.  I finished watching The Killing the other day, and as I watched I took notes about things that might be useful to the show.  I figured I'd post my notes.

This is probably not of general interest.

The sniper dismissing the black parking lot attendant is one of the coldest, most jarring scenes. I don't know that there's a way to replicate that feeling without going to racism. Not a note for our show, really, but just a nod to Kubrick. It's a powerfully effective scene.

Yeah. Out of everything in that film, that scene (and the sniper's corresponding bad end) always especially struck me.

That, and the great pro wrestling bit in the bar. Whoo.
