I’ve been obsessed with this idea since I saw Black Swan in the theater, and it blew me away. This was perhaps the most arresting film I have ever seen. There’s a reason for this, and it’s in the camera rules as well as in the story.I just caught a talk with Darren Aronofsky, and he explained the rules of “subjective filmmaking,” and they are intended to give the main character a special treatment, close to being a point of view experience.
