When John Kimble arrives at the female lead's house he is driving from a dead end street so the town can be in the background. The scene was made better because the viewer is not familiar with the area, an interesting perspective for the director. Another instance of this happening is the final shot in The Rock they are driving towards a dead end.ReplyDelete
