^ VIOLENT SCENES IN NARUTO

^ THIS IS A SHORT FILM THAT I WATCHED ABOUT VIOLENCE AND IN PARTICULAR DOMESTIC VIOLENCE. IT WASN’T THE BEST SHORT FILM BUT IT WAS INTERESTING TO SEE HOW THE MALE PARTNER WAS THE VICTIM AND THE FEMALE PARTNER WAS THE VIOLENT ABUSER. I WATCHED TO ASK MY SELF QUESTIONS ABOUT THE VIOLENCE. HOW DID IT HAPPEN? WHAT VIOLENT METHOD WAS USED? WHAT WAS THE AFTERMATH? AS AN AUDIENCE MEMBER, I CAN SEE THAT SHE WAS HOLDING HER EMOTIONS IN AND AS HER BOYFRIEND KEPT SPEAKING, SHE EVENTUALLY BLASTED OUT INTO A VIOLENT OUTBURST. THIS WILL BE WHY RAK TRIES TO KILL EMILY. HE’S BEEN BOTTLING ALL HIS EMOTIONS IN FOR SOME TIME (FROM THE DEATH OF HIS PARENTS, TO HIS ON GOING LOVE) AND WHEN HE REALISES EMILY DOESN’T LOVE HIM, HE GOES BIZZARE.

^THE BBFC SUGGESTS THAT THERE SHOULD BE NO EMPHASIS ON INJURIES OR BLOOD. IN TERMS OF BLOOD, WE ARE ONLY GOING TO SHOW EMILY’S NOSE BLEEDING. THIS IS PERFECTLY SUITABLE FOR A 12 AUDIENCE AS THEY WILL UNDERSTAND THAT A NOSE BLEED IS A NATURAL THING. IT IS SOMETHING THEY ARE FAMILIARISED WITH. IN TERMS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE, THE BBFC IMPLY THAT SCENES OF RAPE CAN ONLY BE BRIEFLY OR DISCREETLY INDICATED. OUR IDEA IS SUITABLE FOR THIS CRITERIA SO THERE IS NO PROBLEMS WITH THAT.

^I ACTUALLY SEARCHED STRANGLING SCENES AND CAME ACROSS THIS FILM JENNIFER LOPEZ STARS IN. I THOUGHT THE STRANGLING SCENES WAS DONE IN SUCH AN ABSTRACT MANNER. THE MUSIC WAS NOT EXTREMELY LOUD, DETRACTING FROM WHAT ACTUALLY WENT ON. THERE WERE A LOT OF CUTS WHICH CREATED A DISORIENTATED EFFECT. MANY OF THE CUTS WERE TO FLASHBACKS AND WHAT LOPEZ’S CHARACTER COULD SEE. PERHAPS WE MIGHT HAVE A POINT OF VIEW SHOT OF EMILY LOOKING AT THE JOGGER RUNNING, AS EMILY IS BEING STRANGLED
