I mean, do you know what the Hitchcock term McGuffin is? they often use those type of low angle shots to build to the mystery of the object, like when Vincent Vega is inspecting the contents of the briefcase...I think power and fear much more accurate.
Bro thAT wikipedia explanation is literally 10x ******** than the one I gave above discussing lines, weights and tones... People not discussing composition is like a big red-flag that its consumers speaking and not producers..
Yes I do, I actually had a Hitchcock class in college and have probably seen over 20 of his films.I mean, do you know what the Hitchcock term McGuffin is? they often use those type of low angle shots to build to the mystery of the object, like when Vincent Vega is inspecting the contents of the briefcase...
^literally the first image on google when u search McGuffin...
Also in Psycho look how Hitchcock uses the low angle shots on and inside the house behind the hotel.. there's a mystery/suspense building element..
Here is Kubrick using a low angle shot not to demonstrate power or fear, but more as a suspense building element, to demonstrate how vulnerable young danny is.
The real reason you do it is to basically eliminate depth, makes it seem like you have more of a 2 dimensional space and this draws more attention to the lines the weights and the tones.
In the old Japanese masters movies, they used those angles to sort of simulate eye level if you were kneeling in their house as you would traditionally (and because of what I wrote in the sentence directly above)
****. This brings back memories. I’ve never seen the film but the title seemed familiar and based on your comparison to Nosferatu, I thought it was something I had read in college by Goethe. He in fact is the author but it says it was a play which doesn’t ring true with me. I’m gonna bust the book out tomorrow.Faust (1926) This movie is so cool.. Mephisto's character looks amazing. My favorite Murneau Film over the more popular (and older) Nosferatu.
