  • In reply to your guest host that ‘notices director things’, she might want to go back and take a second look at the first Hunger Games movie. I’m not going to argue the merits of the first film vs the second, or vs. the book – but it has always been very clear to me personally that there was a very specific point to the shaky cam. I have no problem if she disagrees with the director’s choices – but it was most certainly an active decision.

    In the beginning of the movie, Katniss has no control over her fate. She lives in a world of fear and powerlessness that’s emphasized by the shaky cam. Once she enters the actual Games, however, the camera is much more controlled. In the Games, Katniss has the ability to alter her fate – it’s ultimately her decisions and her actions that shape her success in the games and the camera reflects that.

    I’ve only seen it once, and never looked into director interviews etc – but I remember being left with that impression very strongly when I left the theatre.
