The Coen Brothers Use Shot/Reverse Shot

Joel and Ethan Coen have a particular style that you’ll recognize even if you haven’t seen the movie or don’t know who did it. One of the facets of this style is the way they film conversations between two people, using shot/reverse shot in a way few other filmmakers ever would. You probably can’t articulate what is different about their cinematography, but Tony Zhou can.

Tony Zhou of Every Frame a Painting makes the mundane parts of filmmaking into a fascinating exploration of how masterpieces are created. (via Metafilter)
