It’s the little things that matter. Here’s an in-depth look from CineFix about the little visual cues and tiny details that directors use to influence what we’re watching on the screen. The scenes from movies like Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Inglourious Basterds, and others show how directors like Ang Lee and Quentin Tarantino shape a story by going beyond the basics of putting a camera on actors and watching them talk. The angles, the cutting, the perspective changes, the focusing, it’s all little pieces of a puzzle that makes for great films.
