The Happening: An In-Depth Analysis Part 2

Montages Magazine: International Edition is back with the second part of the analysis of Night’s 2008 original thriller. We posted about its part one here. The second part, also written by Dag Sødtholt, focuses on the suicide sequences of the film, especially the opening sequence, which is one of my personal favorite openings of all time.

The article dives deeper into the scenes, focusing carefully on the shots about how Night creates a strong visual rhyme.

To every aspiring film-maker and to all Night fans, you should definitely read this. Part two of the analysis can be read here.
