UNDERSTANDING ASPECT RATIO Film can be a quite insidious art form. There are lots of little subtle tricks going on under the main action and dialogue designed to make us feel certain ways, frame our minds in certain ways, and even expect certain things. Already this week we introduced you to a video essay on Scorsese's use of color, specifically red, to effect the emotional ambiance of a scene, but if you thought that was sneaky hold onto your hats because today we're talking about aspect ratio as a thematic device.
