expressionism example with crane shot
CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES
only watch first 3 mins
This scene from "The Cell", one of my favorite movies, is pure expressionism. It about entering the mind of a schizophrenic serial killer. This is the director's attempt to express the insanity and instability of the tortured killer. There are some very nice shots incorporated in the scene. Especially the scene with the baptism, its a great crane shot. The establishing shot showing the surface of the man's brain gives good idea of what to expect in the brain. Clearly the movie had a pretty big budget, and i bet the majority of it went into the mental penetration scenes, further proof comes from the casting of Jennifer Lopez. Blarg.
