Fandor is a site that offers movie streaming for a monthly fee. What makes it different from Netflix is that the film choices are curated by cinephiles. There are no duds in the mix.
Besides their paid service, they also have a blog called Keyframe that offers movie news, filmmaker interviews, podcasts, movie reviews and analysis, and video essays.
I just discovered this little gem on one of my favorite techniques: the Dutch angle, the slanting of the frame to create tension and discomfort. The video essay arranges the examples by degree of angle, so the effect of how much slant is clear. What’s more, there are multiple shots from the same movie, for instance, Do the Right Thing and Evil Dead. These multiple shot examples set up a comparison of an early shot at a lesser degree angle and a later shot at a greater degree, illustrating how a director like Spike Lee heightened the tension of Do the Right Thing as the film progressed.
It’s short, clocking in at under 3 min. Give it a watch.
