I just want to give you the perfect example of gratuitous violence we may find from time to time in some features. This one was released in France in the nineties for rental VHS and (or) airing on TF1 channel during Hollywood Night program. Let me explain.
Just after ten minutes, we watch the two lead cop characters - Micheal Rooker and his female partner - arriving on a murder scene, where a mad man fires on the crowd, right in the street and a few minutes later in the subway. At this point of the story, we already know that it is only a subplot, just to present the two cops to the audience, before the further and lead plot. So, when the director emphasizes on the extreme violence of the slaughter of the poor people killed by the mad dude, we wonder WHY the hell show us this. The mad man is killed two minutes later and the story goes on...
I could have understood if the mad guy would have gone away and continued his killing further in the film. It would have been a way to "present" him...
Get what I mean?
Why filming the crowd slaughter in the WILD BUNCH final scenes manner? Especially if the mad gunman dies just afterwards and the film goes on with another case?
If anyone may explain to me?
