I watched a few minutes of the 2005 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake (with Johnny Depp) the other day.
I was immediately reminded of “The Fifth Element,” a sci fi adventure/comedy with Bruce Willis from a few years earlier.
The similarity was (it seems to me) that there were a lot of close-ups of peoples’ faces and other camera angles which gave both movies an other-worldly feel to them.
Does anyone agree with me that there is a similarity in composition style? If so, is there a name for this practice?
