How using movement in film might be the most underrated skill in movies

The generous intelligence giver that is Tony Zhou of Every Frame a Painting is back again with another detailed look at the nuance of filmmaking. This time he focuses on master director Akira Kurosawa's use of movement in his films (Seven Samurai, Ran, etc.) and how it can tell a story within a story.

I always enjoy it when he compares the skills of true filmmakers to directors of big blockbusters. In this case, he cites the work of Kurosawa against a scene from The Avengers and the difference is jarring. You can support Zhou's work at Every Frame a Painting here.
