Lord of war
The 2005 film Lord of war dir.(Andrew Niccol). In the beginning the camera starts at a high angle then drops down to show the environment of the factory and the workers with machinery. After the creation of the bullet, the camera is attached to the bullet as it takes you on the journey of a bullet to being distributed and used. This creates a sense of audience engagement, the audience becomes the bullet and we are able to see the journey from the most intimate perspective.
When the bullet is spinning round until its picked up just before falling over the edge of the dock the camera remains in first persons throughout.
The sequence takes us from the birth of a bullet and its expedition to reach its purpose which is almost like the circle of life.
