The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Bill Condon, Summit Entertainment, 2011
  • The scene where Jacob imprints on newborn Renesmee is played completely as a love at first sight scene, but it’s such a great moment... A shot where Jacob, overcome by his love for this six minute old child, falls to his knees is stunningly composed and shot. Incredible artistry...”

  • Condon gets around the gore of the C-section by shooting the whole sequence from Bella’s POV. This actually serves to make the whole scene more intense, bringing the Twilight series into real horror for the first time. There’s a nightmare quality to the imagery here that’s chilling, and the set up - Bella laying helpless while Jacob and Edward hover over her - condenses the series in a fractal nutshell.”

  • ...the moment where the werewolf falls in love with a baby...it’s absolutely gorgeous.”
