Dutch Angle (2 replies and 1 comment)
I was watching DOUBT yesterday and I noticed that you used Dutch angle obviously more than others of your works. My questions are:
1, In your point of view, what circumstance we should consider a dutch angle rather than a regular angle. I can feel a very strange mood but I just couldnt explain. That's why I used Dutch angle very carefully.
2, Why you used Dutch angle frequently in Doubt? To you, what's special about this movie?
Here are the screen captures
I have shot 'Dutch angles' a time or two with the Coen Brothers. For 'Doubt' it was John Patrick's idea and he had very specific moments in mind for their use. He had in mind that they would create a kind of awkward tension and feel unsettling.
Thank you so much.
