The Cone Gatherers
A montage of Duror's attraction towards Lady Runcie Campbell, whom he sees as perfect (in contrast to so much else around him that is ugly), is accompanied by a voiceover from the inspector, discussing his state of mind. Back to the drama, Lady Runcie Campbell then describes being disturbed by how Duror talked to her, and how she found Calum dead up a tree after Duror killed him. THE CLIP INCLUDES THEMES OF VIOLENCE AND SEXUALITY, SCENES WITH FIREARMS AND DISTURBING IMAGERY.
Ask the class to make a list of all the ways Duror is surrounded by imperfection. Ask them what he finds solace in. Ask them to think about how Duror would feel if his only salvation (Lady Runcie Campbell) was threatened – does this help us to understand his actions?
