Questions

Answers

What is the title of the film you evaluated?

The title of the film I evaluated is “American
sniper”. Directed by Clint Edwards, the film
is about the most accomplished marksman in
the U.S. military. It is a filmed narrative of
the journey of Chris Kyle from a cowboy
without much hope in his life to becoming
the deadliest sniper in the history of the U.S
(Pomarède, 2018).

What is your film’s point of view?

The film’s point of view is that the United
States has a sacred responsibility to maintain
world peace in countries such as Iraq and
Vietnam. This perspective is based on the
observation that Kyle as played by Bradley
Cooper is the best sniper in the world
(Andrews, 2015). Besides, it shows that the
U.S. has the best weapons such as the most
powerful shooter-rifle used by Cooper.

How are camera angles used in your film?

The film director employs various angles

angle shots to bring out scenes. For example,
low angle shots are used in the opening scene
where the American infantry traversing the
war-torn Iraq. An example of high camera
angles is the scene where Kyle and his team
are ambushed by an Iraqi sniper on the roof
of a building (Pomarède, 2018).
How is your film is framed?

The film is framed with common stereotypes,
Eurocentric discourse, and tropes of empire.
This representation and the resulting
conflation portrays the Middle Eastern and
North American (MENA) communities,
Muslims, and Arabs in a very dangerous and
racist manner in the pretext of American
patriotism. For example, the Eurocentric
discourse frames the U.S. as benevolent
while the Iraqi are barbaric and uncivilized
(Pomarède, 2018).
