Hell or High Water - Introducing Character through their tactics

In this video essay, The Film Guy discusses character introductions, and why a scene in which two characters attempt to accomplish a task is preferable to introducing characters through simple dialogue. Using Hell or High Water as an example, he shows us how throwing characters immediately into a situation tells us a lot about who that character is, based on their tactics and reactions.
