La Haine - So Far, So Good...

How and why does La Haine tell its story the way it does? Lewis Bond sets out to answer this question by analyzing filmmaker Mathieu Kassovitz’s use of time, editing, sound design, shot choice and environment, all of which successfully create rising tension in a film with an unconventional narrative structure and almost no causal plot.
