Really enjoyed this episode... referencing the scene you guys talked about in the episode where the camera holds as the soldiers head off from the boarder visit and Emily blunt's character confront's Josh Brolin's... I think the scene worked so well because it was a small snapshot of some of the main conflicts the movie explored... such as the remoteness and entitlement power feels it has... i.e in there being this barricaded hillside fortress containing the men and women who had carried out decisions that affected a much bigger, poorer and sparser landscape that was in the background... plus it demonstrated the obdurate nature of Emily Blunt's agent as the conscience of the film who had begun to questions what they were doing - and ultimately try to stop - the ops team... whereas others (i'e the soldiers unit) were fully happy with what they were doing and carry on (skipping into the facility), she is not and pushes back. The way the scene stopped almost marked a point in her character where her feelings get to an extent that she cannot hold back, and I thought using the camera in such a way (sub consciously) was a really interesting extension of a shift in the way her character feels and begins to act in the movie.
