Deconstruct a scene from Hud or Black Narcissus in respect to its cinematography.
Scene where Hud forces himself on Alma:
Starts off with Medium and Long shots. Moves into the first close up, when Alma is frantically trying to close lock the door. Implying impending doom. Then when they struggle against the wall, quick close up shots that alternate views. Show this is the climax of that scene. After Lonnie breaks everything up, moves back out to medium and long shots. The bad part is over.
The lighting on Hud is mostly in shadow. When he makes moves toward her house, the shadows cover his whole face making him look more sinister. When he enters her house, he turns off the lights and their initial struggle is in silhouette. Lonnie enters, the lights turn on. After when Hud is washing his face, he is in shadow and Lonnie is lit. Contrast between good and bad.
The angles are subtle high and lows during their struggle. At the end when Hud has left and Lonnie is standing in the house, its a high angle with Alma still on the floor. She looks small, a victim but yet it also feels like she is guilty as well.
The lighting and different shots in the scene set the mood. We know something bad is about to happen when Hud's face moves out of the light. Lonnie's involvement in the whole scene is almost always lit. His character is the hero in the scene and the lighting symbolizes that.
