Mr Barker's example: The French Connection (1971) Genre- Crime Thriller Outline/Synopsis: New York detectives "Popeye" Doyle and Buddy Russo hope to break a narcotics smuggling ring and ultimately uncover the French connection...
Why do I like this film? A- This is a 'Hollywood' film but unlike no other in my opinion. It feels gritty and real. When the two detectives go about their work, there is no glamour and no easy solution to solving crime. A lot of the scenes are played out in real-time which can make it quite mundane. However, when the action begins it is edge of the seat stuff and altogether thrilling. The action sequences convincing and exhausting. This is down to the fact that the film owes a lot to a style of filmmaking known as French New Wave. The French Connection captures a real sense of realism and energy by extensive use of actual locations, ordinary people going about their daily lives, natural lighting and hand-held cameras.

When the camera passes over the invisible axis connecting the two subjects, it is called crossing the line and the shot becomes what is called a reverse angle. Reversing the angle is commonly thought to be disorienting and can distract the audience from the intent of the scene. The 180 degree rule is not a law, many notable filmmakers intentionally cross the line to achieve a desired effect that might support the stories narrative.
