|In this scene, Napoleon Solo needs to cause a commotion to get the attention of the hostess, Victoria; he does so by allowing a guard to clumsily punch him so he can then cause a greater commotion and proceed to rob her of several expensive jewelry pieces. Just as the punch in this scene contains a greater meaning than just a punch (the need for commotion) so the entire film is like this, nearly every single scene, embedding additional meaning and begging us to enter in and interpret it. There are so many sophisticated narrative devices used in the film, it would probably take me five or six posts--specifically focusing on just one aspect, like the music--in order to feel like I had a significant percentage of the film decoded; sadly, I don't have the time to do that, so we will just have to settle for much less.|
