Are you sure you want to delete this?

I think moving from ots shots to a closeup can be a very powerful technique, I think you should use Singles and closeups sparingly only in moments that are narratively important. Try analyzing this scene without any sound so you can zone in on the visual language, I do this with all my favorite scenes. Check out some of David Finchers films(Mindhunter is on Netflix) and do this, his uses of a closeup are used sparingly and when it is used the impact is that much stronger.
