The Dynamic Frame: Camera Movement in Classical Hollywood

2.x21 The Bat Whispers

Throughout this sequence, the film develops an extended comparison between the camera and the film’s supervillain, known as the “Bat.” Both have the power to fly through space, to climb walls, to peer through windows, to see without being seen. But the analogy does not humanize the camera so much as it renders it uncanny: like the Bat, the camera is eerily human and nonhuman at the same time.
