The only time
it stopped raining was when John Doe surrendered himself and took them for a
trip in a bright lit hell like desert. 
The technique of chiaroscuro is frequently used in conjunction with
difficulties such as bars or rails that assists to frame the morality of the
characters and foreshadow their fates. In this scene, a barrier conceals John
doe capturing him to communicate to the audience that he is the ‘bad guy’. In
contrast with Detective Somerset he is presented of all confining devices which
tells the audience that he is the ‘good guy’. On the other hand, it becomes
interesting when the camera shots showing that Detective Mills is both at times
obstructed behind bars and sometimes not, which can be questioned that is
Detective Mills a bad guy? The imagery of the bars when showing Mills can
connote the ‘grey area’ of his morality also foreshadowing his fate where we
find out in the final scenes of the film.
