This still film shot using 'Extreme close up' and using 'Shallow depth of field' is a very clever technique. Using the reflection of the persons eyes shows the audience what they are looking at, why they are coming across in that way through emotion.
Close-Up | Abbas Kiarostami | 1990. A tough film to watch. Set in Iran. A cross between documentary and reenacting for art and sanity's sake. Hated it at first, but learning to appreciate film where film is few.
What It Is: Psycho Screenshots Why I Like It: It depicts prominant scenes within Alfred Hitchcock's 'Psycho' that suit the genre of 'suspense'. The camera shots used within the film made it stand out amongst other horror films, therefore making it unique and memorable. For example, extreme close ups are extensively used for effect.
