Mark Cousins on Yasujiro Ozu - How Camera Angles and Distances Convey Feelings (Video)

There are thousands of videos on Youtube that are of interest to a movie fanatic like me, but this is the first one (apart from my own videos) that I've felt compelled to post on this site. The part that's particularly brilliant begins around 7.00. It's just a fantastic analysis of how we experience the human figure in the frame when watching a movie, and how different camera angles and distances convey different feelings. I thought it was a revelation.
