Why show him dying at the beginning ?
I don't understand why they chose to show him dying, in such an elaborate manner, at the very beginning of the film. They take you through this 5 minute,up close, anonymous motorcycle ride (we don't it is him yet),that ends in tragedy. They could have just inserted it, more appropriately, at the end, it seems to me.
It would have had more pathos at the end, after all he has gone through, and we see him die in a silly accident. Was it just a wide screen, cinerama kind of thing, to get your attention..?
