We break into Jim Caviezel’s “The Count of Monte Cristo” and discuss:
- Cinematography, framing, depth of field, and shutter angle;
- Story & writing, why comedic beats cut the tension, Edmond’s true enemy;
- Directing & Performance, adding significance to a moment, ending a scene with energy;
- and other such stuff and things and stuff.
