The Psychology of Allan Grey's Vision









































First two shots of Dreyer's Vampyr--Allan Grey arrives: he's a beanpole, dark slim (casually slanted) vertical lines out of a gray mist. He looks up, sees the sign for the hotel (a pan down reveals the reason for the sign). Tall, thin, vertical Mr. Grey's gaze--if that's what Dreyer's pan down aims to suggest--of course looks up and down before he looks left and right ...

More to follow, eventually.

great symmetry- the circles above their heads, the poles at their backs, even the outline of his bag echos the grass under the figure.
keen observation, zach.
