    Have you ever seen any of Wong Kar Wai's movies?

    I am just here to find something to watch. You have great taste for movies (and I rarely say that to people). So, when are you going to make recommendation videos?

    hey man big fan of the channel, seen most of your videos more than once now, either by myself or trying to show my gf all this cool film theory you got going on. I watched "let the right one in" again the other day and had a thought. how do they decide to introduce characters and how does reflect the characters actual role or personality. the scene where it finally shows Eli and the gentleman that collects blood for her together made me think of this. they aren't seen together for quite a time into the movie, and i feel like this is to give more significance and depth to the relationship between the gentleman and Eli. Also i'm sure this applies in other movies, with comedies introducing characters in crazy ways to get a laugh, or my least favorite, revealing a characters true identity as a plot twist. would love to hear your thoughts on introductions and the significance of the framing. love the vids my dude, makes me feel like i'm not snipe hunting when i try to dive deeper into movie theory.

      Hey thanks for the reply man means a lot. Recently showed Pulp Fiction to my girl for the first time and had to explain why I personally think nobody did dialogue better than Tarantino in Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs (next on the list). I'm glad you do what you do, and I appreciate the way you do commentary, no need for super quick cuts and providing meaningful commentary without spoiling the moment that you are outlining. Keep up the good work man!

      I think I talk about this a little in my film score essay? The classic example is Hans Gruber in Die Hard. He enters through the elevator to MENACING music. I feel like this is the usual case for villains. He also walks towards the camera, showing his dominance.
      I also like Marsellus Wallace's entrance. We only see him from behind. Apparently, this was somewhat improvised because Tarantino had to acknowledge the band-aid that actor had to have because he cut himself shaving. He later said it accentuated his mercurial nature and was more interesting than single shots. Of course, one can't help but feel an homage to "The Godfather" in this shot. Now THAT'S the best character introduction ever. No other character introduction shows so much power, so much control. Vito doesn't need to say anything to get Americano a drink; he just moves his finger a tiny bit.

    I know it is a tv show but still, I have to ask if you could make something about The Leftovers. That show completely touched and surprised me. It is getting better and better each season.

    Hey! Love your content! I have been thinking how cars are used in film lately, and I feel like that could be a very interesting subject for a video. How do cars influence the scene? What are the purposes of scenes shot inside of cars? What does a character's car choice mean?

  • Richard Hawkins

    I like your take on movie making. Have you done one on saying people's names in movies. Years ago I was asked to write a script for an amateur production. It was a family / kids show and I'd been watching a lot of kid's TV with my daughter. One thing I noticed was that if you didn't learn anything else watching the shows you learned the names of the characters! They say them all the time, like Tinky Winky, Dipsy, La La and Po. Or Shrek, Donkey and Fiona! You can even hear the voices as you think about the names. I made sure that when my characters talked to each other they always used their names. I've noticed how sometimes in movies where they don't do this, it is easy to get lost. When someone refers to someone who is off screen, you may be thinking, "which one was that?!" I'd love to hear that analysed by someone who thinks about this stuff! Like is it dumbing down or is it a way of keeping the audience involved?

    request: a collection of all the cool cuts in movies!!!!!!!
    eg. in Luc Besson when a guy blows out the candles in his cake, and next it is all dark and the only light is from some lights down in the subway :)

    Hello, I am a fan and have a request for a video listing some of the best deliverings of information to the viewer. Sometimes I see this done in very elegant ways, where the viewer get the nessesary backstory/information without it being too obivious, and I would thus like to see a video listing as many examples of this as possible :)

    Hey, I just wanted to say I really enjoy your channel. I've just recently become a cinema studies minor, so I love seeing channels like this that really focus on the intricate small details like one would a significant novel. Thanks!

    I thank you for your great work, and I have subscribed.
    However, please take a note from "Every Frame a Painting" and add credits listing the movies you use in your presentation.
    It is respectful of the artist and allows us to place the movies we've seen and since forgotten.

    Hello. I just want to compliment you on your skills to analyze and break apart certain situations and moments. Because I too will watch movies and see the same kind of things. Such as the drowning dead and rebirth situation and the touch moments in films. Keep doing this because you are bringing to light to the public the depth and the complexity of film making and what every scene really means. Thank you.

    why is it that we like people like dr. house who in real life we wouldn't like spending time with, or more like what is it that movies/series do to make us like them.

    Does the right side of the screen show power in a movie? I was watching No Country for Old Men and realized that Anton is usually shown on the right side of the screen. I was wondering if this was on purpose to show how intimidating and deadly he is.

    Concerning your video: Which way did he go? Lateral character movement in film.... You said that Strangers on a train was a film that realized this theory way before anyone studied this. But you could say that Maya Deren realized this in her 1943 film Meshes of the afternoon. It doesn't make a difference but I would just like to point that out.
    P.S. I wrote this here because I thought no one would see it since the video is 8 months old.

    Hey, I just wanted to say thank you for doing your videos. Of all the people that upload their film essays to youtube, you're one of my favorites because you go straight to the point in a classy way, and you achieve to make me 'see it' every single time. Thank you very much, and have a nice day and a nice life too.

    Hey, I love how much you go in depth with your videos on what you cover and I was wondering if you could try covering the art of dancing in film. Not so much about how good it looks but how much it develops or invokes a character and helps develops them. A few examples you could use is the dance scene from Bande Apart, the competition scene in Little Miss Sunshine and maybe the twist contest in Pulp Fiction. I'd like to see how you can cover this.

    I don't know if you take requests (if you don't cool) but I've been curious about the relationship between the background and the foreground in movies. Specifically events that happen in the background as other events unfold in the foreground. Can two different story's be told, one in the foreground and the other in the background, in the same movie? Thanks

    Just wanted to thank you for your great videos. I learned a lot and was entertained. I especially like the way you edit and the way you quote movies to show your points. I draw for a living so everything on composition, timing, format, staging... well, everything was very insightful.
    You're one of these people I'd enjoy also watching movie reviews from a lot! (I understand, that you do written short-reviews to your patreons)
    Good luck with your video series, I hope you'll find more support and thank you for providing us with free quality content : )

    I really want to watch your videos but I can't handle the narration. I think you remove the natural pauses between sentences, giving the listener no breathing room to process what you said. It gives an impression of an annoying stranger who can't stop talking.

  • Fidel Cashflow

    Amazing videos, but I feel that one major thing you could do to improve the quality of the videos is to display the movie title along with the scene you are showing in the video. I've seen a lot of great scenes you have used as examples that have gotten me interested in watching their respective film but couldn't figure out what the film was called. Other than that I think these videos are great and I'll definitely subscribe and support this channel.

    I watch movies to think but it seems movies are getting more VFX than a good story nowadays... or maybe my eyes are missing some details...
    Thank you for all the effort sharing your points of view with us. I like the way you pick a theme and talk about it with references of a hand of movies.
    Keep the good job!
