I like movies and I have studied a tiny bit what goes into making one. Still, at the movies I’m just enjoying the movie, not looking at how it was made. I might notice a clever cut or good lighting, but most of the that just goes by and helps telling a story.
That’s why it’s fun to see studies of different directors where someone points out all the tricks they use.
Here’s one example about the stuff David Fincher does, or doesn’t do. (Via Kottke)
