Spectacle in The Interpreter?

I had some trouble trying to apply Debord’s postulations on the spectacle to The Interpreter. In terms of a Hollywood film it is somewhat subdued and at least attempts to hold back a bit from “the spectacle”.  I did manage to find several scenes that could be interesting to analyze in terms of their purpose to the overall film.

1) The scene where the bomb goes off on the bus followed by the reactions and aftermath.



2) Also the scene before Zuwaine comes to the UN.


I would be interesting to see what the class thought about these two scenes.
