At the beginning  of the sequence, many close-up shots of the room are used to establish setting and give the audience a clearer idea of why the character may have the emotions that they do. The music used in the background is very atypical for a thriller film to use, and sets a different tone for the rest of the film.

This kind of shot may also be used make the audience feel more included and be able to follow the narrative in a clearer way. The extreme close up of the boys face is used to show his emotion and convey the tension.
