One Point Perspective was using a centered focus. It was many scenes with a grid in the background. It’s priority is to show how perceive things, hence the title. Everything that was shot followed Roger Ebert’s theory. Positives are on the right, and negatives are on the left. If something is centered then it means emphasis on that object.
Just like a book. The Shining has a scene where videos are slowly emerging over a black screen. Every new box appears to the right of the previous addition. When the row of videos fills the screen, a new row of videos emerges beneath.
I love Tarantino as a director so I knew I would enjoy From Below. This one defied Ebert’s theory on positive and negative. In two scenes, the actor on the left is in more positive position, usually involving a weapon. In Pulp Fiction, actor Samuel Jackson aims a handgun in a threatening manner. I am not sure which movie it is but it involves a duel. The duel is between two men with swords. The man on the left wins however. This also broke the theory.
