CAROL: The Voyeuristic Camera | Jacob T. Swinney

Rate . . . PG
Genre . . . Documentary . Arts . Forbidden Love
Length . . . 51s

CAROL (2015) is a film about forbidden love. This concept is very much echoed in the film’s cinematography. Director Todd Haynes presents us with many shots of Therese watching Carol from afar, Carol unaware she is being observed. In these moments, the camera serves as Therese’s POV, forcing us to feel the struggle between her uneasiness and her desire. Even when a character is not secretly observing another person, Haynes often positions his camera in a way that makes us feel like we are the voyeur. Shooting through windows and obscuring our view with door frames, Haynes places us where we are not supposed to be. We are watching something we shouldn’t be watching, and that is what makes CAROL such an experience.

Music: “Datebook” by Carter Burwell
