Spring Breakers (2012)

There is a new style of camerawork that has been growing extremely popular among directors in recent years– which mostly consists of freehanded, extreme close-ups of the film’s characters.  In my humble opinion, I find it  as an incredibly irritating and lazy attempt to force the viewer to focus on the particular character’s emotions. Zooming in on an actor’s face so much that one can literally count the hairs up his or her nose is not crafty storytelling.
