[Blow Out] Was the plan to shoot the tire, the driver or miss on purpose ?

Post by livelove »

To those of you who watched De Palma's Blow Out (1981) , what sense did you make of the gunshot ?

In the movie stills taken by Karp, you can clearly see how the shot missed the car. The bullet hits the bushes about 1 car-length ahead, as the viewer can see the bullet impact there in form of a dust plume. So why did the blowout occur? According to the movie, there was no second shot.
