Schickes neues Essay aus Tony Zhous Videoreihe “Every Frame a Painting”, in dem er sich den Coen Brüdern und der sehr intimen und eigenen Art ihrer Dialogszenen widmet.

How do you film a conversation? Most likely, you’re going to block the actors, set up the camera, and do shot/reverse shot. But where do you put the camera? What lens do you use? And how do you cut back and forth? Today, I consider the Coen brothers — Joel & Ethan — and see how these choices lend a particular feel to their version of shot/reverse shot.
