Hi,

saw this movie some years ago on the big screen. It starts out with an extremely shallow
depth of field macro shot of white fabric that gets soaked with a red liquid. I loved that shot!
Towards the end of the movie, it turns out that this is an investigator soaking blood to a
suspected child molester's clothes, thus falsifying evidence.

Does anyone know the title of the movie?

Thanks!

Greetings,
Marc

Wow, I remember seeing this a few years back, but of course don't remember the title?

In fact, the only thing I remember is that shot of the fabric! (I think it came up in a discussion for a horror/sci-fi film I shot circa '05? I'll ask the director and see if he knows.).

It's also reminiscent of the opening of American Psycho -- with the dripping raspberry sorbet (although I know that's not what you're referring to here).

Sorry I couldn't help, but thanks for reminding me of that shot!

Not the one you are looking for but check out the opening credits of 'Dexter' for more of the same action

Hi Marc

I think you are talking about INSOMNIA (starring Al Pacino & directed by Christopher Nolan).

Cheers
Alex
