    Some really odd choices in this one - no number of dramatic push-ins are going to give life to these intentionally lifeless and staged scenes, but the intense and vivid close-ups that get sustained throughout entire sequences give an emotive oomph to its shot reverse shots. But the funniest scene is easily the first suicide attempt.
