In an earlier post, I have said that there is another interesting shot in the movie ‘The Conversation’. This shot is not so much like a difficult shot to shoot, but what interests me more about this shot is what it brings to the table. It is interesting in that it goes beyond its immediate purposes of forcing the plot forward, and tries to give an insight into people.
The shot begins with Harry in the confessional, and telling the priest his sins. The focus is completely on Harry at the beginning of the shot.
But as his monologue proceeds, the camera zooms on…
…and on until he is totally out of focus; The background which had been dark until now, is illuminated.
The camera zooms further until Harry is completely out of the frame and we can make out the face of the priest through the mesh.
