Yesterday afternoon (as I was politely firing my old accountant and meeting with my new one) Rope Of Silicon‘s Brad Brevet pointed out how oppressive regimented flashback sequences have become (i.e., always some of dreamtrip effect, always a different film stock or texture), and how ingenious it was for Alfred Hitchcock to invite those 1940 audiences watching Rebecca to — horrors! — imagine the details as Laurence Olivier recalled the take of his late wife’s accidental death. The sequence starts somewhere around 3:20, but doesn’t really kick in until 4:00 or thereabouts.
