What aspects of a film do you like most and how do they contribute to the film as a whole.
At the moment I'm a big fan of the dutch angle camera shot,it keeps being used endlessly in all the weird and wonderful 1970's American films I've been watching of late.I guess the directors used it to displace the audience from the action and to highlight the off kilterness of the story/scene.However as the films I've been watching have been so strange anyway it just increases the madness.(see review/recommendations topic for examples and post a review whilst there.)
I also like acting that is either over the top or so nonexistent that it becomes anti-acting.Both I find can add an extra layer of reality to a film but not a reality that coexists with the rest of the film.
Enough of my navel gazing,what do you like:acting,lighting,music,editing etc.
