The sequence involves an inmate who has refused to eat and drink for days. Despite the threats, the inmate persists on his refusal. Wiseman holds the shot on the proceedings, even capturing the fact that the hospital lacked enough vaseline to cover the entire tube in order to make its insertion more tolerable.
Wiseman offers no explanation, trusting that the jump cuts will provide his audience with all the information they need. It is the only time Wiseman employs the technique, and various effects come with it.
First, Wiseman catches the audience by surprise, offering no warning for the image of a dead person, with his face contorted in apparent pain. The audience is suddenly projected into the future, thus, in its moment of self-reflexiveness the film reveals the fact that the filmmaker knows more than the audience. Wiseman has withheld information; he has seen the effects of his month-long sojourn at Bridgewater. And he has decided to provide said information by way of a disruptive cutting style. But like the Real, that something which in the scheme of the overall film would seem to be the Truth, is immediately lost, somehow absorbed into each individual audience member.

The filmic mechanism and its characteristic movement forces the vanishment of that kernel of momentary reality. After all, a film depends on movement to achieve all its effects. Wiseman unveils a truth that in his film takes over, by filtering all that the audience has witnessed up to that moment in the film.
The audience is forced to reassess all that it has seen and heard before and is similarly called to keep the event in mind as the film moves on. Anderson, Carolyn and Thomas W. Southern Illinois UP: Carbondale, Chanan, Michael. The Politics of Documentary.
