While we were watching the movie on the Russian film maker, I heard the portion about the camera angles and I thought it was really interesting. After Professor Langguth said something about it in class, I thought about it more in depth and the narrator was right. I think in western movies, we are concerned more with coming off as strong and "big". We're also concerned with maybe action as well and industry and buildings. We aren't concerned with nature because we simply have gotten rid of it to build things like cities and skyscrapers and etc. European cinema is filled with nature and flowers because they have preserved it and are concerned with making sure they preserve it.
