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.

The Dutch Angle | Jacob T. Swinney

Rate . . . PG
Genre . . . Experimental . Narrative . Animation
Length . . . 2m 56s

Is the Dutch angle the black sheep of cinematography? A technique created by tilting the camera any number of degrees to either side, the Dutch angle (also referred to as a Dutch tilt or canted angle) is often met with mixed opinions. Film Noir classics like Carol Reed’s THE THIRD MAN are applauded for their use of the tilt and how it enhances the seedy, discombobulated nature of the films. On the other hand, more modern films such as BATTLEFIELD EARTH and THOR were berated by critics for their excessive use of the angle. Being that the tilted camera angles lines that are straight in reality, we become disoriented as our eyes try to adjust to the tilted environment. When a character makes a devastating realization, a slight tilt of the camera can make the moment all the more uncomfortable for us as a viewer (even on a subconscious level). While some Dutch angles are blatantly obvious and easily defined due to extreme angles, others are subtle to the point of going unnoticed—we sense that something is off, but we can’t quite put our finger on it. The Dutch angle seems to be at its most effective when it is used to convey or enhance a feeling. Here is a look at the Dutch angle used in a variety of films to a variety of extremes.
