Viktorija Eksta's comment:
here is the main fight of the movie- Demin starts shooting, after it develops in hand fight and two of the goldminers are killed. A lot of object and person's close ups are used to create drammatism of this scene.

I decided to take a closer look on how this fight scene is made. The atmosphere of violent fight is created as well by using lot of expressive people's and object's close ups as the shots with physical action that can be considered violent.

So I made a little modifications of cinemetrics graph in ms.paint, to see the distribution of close ups and physical violence shot in the sequnce. Here is the modificated graph

the pink ones are shots of what can be called physical violent action

the blue ones are close-ups of people and objects.

the scene is cut almost 2 times faster than the movie in general.
