Power Dynamics Via Angles [Silence of the Lambs Edition]

I’m really enjoying the Every Frame a Painting series from Tony Zhou!

Last week, I shared with you his analysis of David Fincher’s brilliant directorial techniques. Today, I bring you a similar video that dissects a famous scene from Silence of the Lambs. This one’s less than 3 minutes long, so take a look if you didn’t watch the David Fincher one.

Once again, I’m blown away by how something seemingly-simple as camera angles can play such a crucial role. It’s almost as if camera angles can act as narrators, or even convey subliminal messages!

Now I’m tempted to rewatch all my favorite movies to examine what I’ve missed…
