I am going to choose a short scene sequence from any movie (Moulin Rouge?) and do an analysis (narrative, genre, editing, gender, whatever)

But which scene should I choose?

1) "Faerie" entrance to MR!
2) "Can Can"
3) El Tange de Roxanne
4) Satine's Death
5) Elephant Love Medley
6) Your Song

I think the editing in "Roxanne" scene is the juiciest. Yum.
Must it be Moulin Rouge?

You could go for the more technical directors - PTA's long tracking shot at the beginning of Boogie Nights - almost 10 minutes long and a great technical achievement, and very rich for analysis... Or Fincher's Fight Club, which has an incredible amount of memorable scenes - the scene where Edward Norton's house turns into a IKEA catalog, and so on...

The best thing is that these movies are available on DVD, and you can hear the director himself analyse the scene for you. Heh.
the problem is i am too lazy to go out and rent a dvd and the dvds on my shelf are limited..

silence of the lambs, moulin rouge, the hours, to die for, gladiator, blue velvet and moulin rouge just seems like the outstanding choice.. and it comes with extra features and commentary as well!
Oh, the scene in Silence, near the end, where the detectives enter the house and the director tricks the audience into thinking it's the same house the killer is in, is a pretty good scene to talk about too :P

But if MR has the commentary, then maybe it's the better choice... I would pick Roxanne for editing, and Elephant Love Medley for the intricate production design and choreography (think there's a short feature on both scenes on the DVD?)
i've got the 2 disc moulin rouge.. but i cant rem if there's a short feature on both scenes... i must check it out... i am very interested in doing editing.. think prolly i will choose Roxanne... seems everyone loves it.. hahaha but i wun rule out elephant love medley as well
I have it too... I think there is an extended Roxanne sequence, can't remember if there is commentary... But there is a director's commentary anyways...
