‘Film analysis examines films as wholes, or totalities, and tries to explain how the various parts function. Usually analysis starts with a question—e.g., what generates suspense in this sequence? or how does the filmmaker suggest the characters’ psychological states? or why are certain pieces of story information omitted? The analyst tries to answer the question by looking for strategies of storytelling, patterns of style, and so on.’ – David Bordwell
