Video: “Alley of Nightmares” | Anatomy of a scene

Hello, I’m Guillermo del Toro. I’m the director of Nightmare Alley. [APPLAUSE] The scene we’re looking at is the first time we’ve seen the show of mentalism and clairvoyance being done by Stanton Carlisle, the film’s central character, played by Bradley Cooper. We see him for the first time in a new outfit with a tuxedo and an eye patch, which is a recurring symbol in the film. And he will have to meet with the main female antagonist, Lilith Ritter, played by Cate Blanchett. And we have Stanton doing this show, which is a word code fortune telling show with Rooney Mara, who plays Molly. I use spotlights and cabaret to illuminate them. When I imagine Lilith, the camera highlights her and we see her in the spotlight. So these spotlights are often only used to highlight the moment in between. The location is circular because the circles begin to haunt Stanton the first time he sees a computer fan show, a horrific carnival sideshow. And this is a character who eats chickens and snakes, and does it in a round pit. And from that moment on, Stanton is surrounded by circles in the film. Concentrate. Do you have any more details? “” There is an inscription. Letters. Am I right? “” You. ” [APPLAUSE] And this is the environment in which he is outside his depth, but does not yet know about it. “Yes, please give me the item.” “No thanks. I’ll hold.” Very good. “” Master Stanton, what is this lady holding on to? ” “Well, it seems like it’s a golden night. A golden purse. [APPLAUSE] “Be quiet, child. Let me ask questions. What’s inside the bag? “Madam, what does this mean?” “You say that you are sincere, and I say that you are using some kind of verbal cues to communicate between the two of you.” Stanton is not without talent, and this scene becomes a duel between him and how she sees him and his attempts to prove that he is superior to everyone, including herself. When we started filming the first few scenes with Bradley and Kate, I tried to make sure they weren’t equidistant. I wanted Bradley to move. Both here and when he visits her in her office, they are, in fact, two whirling tigers. So I asked Bradley to go a full circle around that circle, walk up to her and take a couple of steps down. “Small pistol”. [AUDIENCE GASPS] “Nickel plated. Ivory handle. Can I? “And it is both a coincidence and a temptation. It is indeed a ritual and a duel that I am trying to arrange. [APPLAUSE]
