The Close Up
13 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The primitive technology of photography is evident in this film. The close up is matted out in black, highlighting the character's face or subject matter to emphasize a point. The cinematography of Robert Burks had not yet developed in the silent era, and cinema had some way to go.
