In The Dark Knight, Heath Ledger's Joker encourages a bedridden Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart) to "introduce a little anarchy" into the established order.

Themes of anarchy and power are reiterated throughout The Dark Knight in Ledger's performance, yes. But we also see both in the film's low-angle shots.

In this mini course with Chicago Movie Tours, you'll take to 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
