Today’s Video of the Day comes from Between Frames, a channel on Vimeo that describes its purpose as “looking deeper into the story, style & symbolism of popular cinema.”
In their latest video they examine the use of the ‘two shot’ in Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, which places the characters of Joel and Clementine together in the frame as their relationship comes together, falls apart, and is resurrected. The film’s cinematography is done artfully by Ellen Kuras.
If you haven’t seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I recommend renting it as soon as possible. To this day it remains one of the most beautiful films I have ever seen. And if you like this video, be sure to check out more from Between Frames.
