Came across this a while back, and I finally got around to making a proper post to share this excellent breakdown of the composition, editing and cohesive storytelling that is present in one of my favorite influential films – Sergio Leone’s The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
That score from the composer Ennio Morricone, “The Ecstasy of Gold” (Italian: L’Estasi dell’Oro), during the frantic search of the cemetery… Absolutely haunting.

Pixar’s The Incredibles is one of my favorite animated movies, and this post is an extremely straight-forward and valuable breakdown of the cinematography involved. From live-action to animated to comics, the composition of each image (be it moving or static) is essential to know for every visual medium.
Yes, rules are made to be broken, but you can’t break a rule effectively if you have no idea what the rules are in the first place. Also, breaking a rule is only effective if it actually has an impact, which best arises as contrast to the other UNBROKEN rules. If all the rules are broken, then it’s just a directionless mess.
