Double Indemnity/L.A. Confidential Stills

For L.A. Confidential I used still number 33 of 99 (https://picasaweb.google.com/ctrova/LAConfidential?authuser=0&feat=embedwebsite#5527359609216827362) and for Double Indemnity I used number 19 of 49 (http://picasaweb.google.com/ctrova/DoubleIndemnityStillShots?feat=embedwebsite#5524227295306645682)
In these two shots, both Walter Neff and Bud White have similar perplexed looks on their faces. Both the shots are pretty extreme close-ups but the one of Walter is more of a close up shot. All of the lighting is focused on Walter in the Double Indemnity shot and only part of Bud's face is illuminated by the light in the shot from L.A. Confidential. Both of the characters are clearly the center of the image. Walter Neff has more of a perplexed look on his face and Bud looks as if he's figuring something out.

  1. Yeah, I'd call the shot of W an XCU. What is Walter figuring out? What is happening to each man at these plot points? How does the background help explain where Bud is?
