A story. A man fires a rifle for many years. and he goes to war. And afterwards he comes home, and he sees that whatever else he may do with his life - build a house, love a woman, change his son’s diaper - he will always remain a jarhead. And all the jarheads killing and dying, they will always be me. We are still in the desert.
PLAYING GOD IN PSYCHO (1960)
Watching movies through the Almighty perspective.
Bird’s-eye view: When the subject is photographed directly overhead, the angle is disorienting, which perhaps explains its infrequent use. “Bird’s-eye shot” are sometimes employed in films dealing with the theme of fate and destiny, for this angle provides us with a kind of Godlike omniscience, in which the character below can seem insignificance.
"Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf. What frightens us today is exactly the same sort of thing that frightened us yesterday. It’s just a different wolf. This fright complex is rooted in every individual."
Alfred Hitchcock (August 13th 1889 - April 29th 1980)
