THE LIST

No Country For Old Men
It’s all about subtext. The moment Anton Chigurh actually makes the decision to kill Carson Wells and all the subtext behind it.

Godfather 2
Blocking is key. When Michaels’s sister and her new fling tell him they want to get married, Michael’s words – his “text” – seem to suggest that he’s trying to reason with his sister, but his BODY is all about controlling the scene.

Chinatown
The camera can enhance the blocking of a scene. So first thing’s first, Polanski establishes a distance between Jake and Evelyn. He puts a table in between them and even though he never shows it – he uses it to separate them along the Z axis. And then, he takes the subtext and rubs it in our faces.

In the Mood for Love
Withholding can tell us as much as showing. In contrast to the typical quiet, static moments of the film, this one is different. The camera is constantly moving, and in slow motion. There’s no diegetic sound, only a simple violin theme.

Reservoir Dogs
Withholding can be used to create extreme tension. All of a sudden, we go from fast-paced, musical torture scene to painfully slow long-take of a character just… walking.
