Lord of War Opening Sequence
The opening of Lord of War starts with the beginning of the bullet making process, it follows the bullet going through various cutting machines, being re moulded into a hollow casing then filled with gun powder; the camera cleverly follows this entire process from pretty much the bullets perspective. The bullets are then sorted and filtered, checking for duds then packaged up. The destination for the crates is not known however a good guess can be make that it is an African nation. The camera continues to follow the bullets on their journey to the point of being loaded into a gun, and fired, rather disturbingly into what appears to be a child's head. This is where the opening scene cuts to a blank screen, leading into the rest of the film.
