🛑 Oops, you just missed us!
In The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger's Joker encourages a bedridden Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) to "introduce a little anarchy" into the established order. The theme of anarchy is reiterated throughout The Dark Knight in Ledger's performance, yes. But we also see it in the film's low-angle shots.
In this mini course, you'll take to (and below!) the streets of downtown Chicago, where The Dark Knight filmed in 2007, to learn:
- what low-angle shots are
- how to recognize them onscreen
- what they may signify in The Dark Knight — and in Hollywood movies in general
