Evaluation: How does your media product represent particular social groups?

Our film's main character is shown having flashbacks in our opening title sequence. Another film I know that starts like this is 'Memento'. The two characters are completely different but have a few similarities. Both characters are young males, which is quite popular for thriller movies. Both openings start with a flashback of a murder, but the murder in 'Memento' is created by a gun whereas the little girl in our film is murdered with a knife. Also we actually see the main character of 'Memento' shoot the victim whereas we never actually see Prince stab the little girl. 

Both characters show us their memories in the opening scene which gives us a bit of understanding of their character. When we show the memories we made the clip a faded grey colour whereas in 'Memento' the scene is re-winded. The main character of 'Memento' is shown holding a photo of the dead body which may be something he enjoys doing, but on the other hand, our character is not given any sign that he is the killer and that he wanted to do it.
