Watch: Supercut Takes A Look At The POV Shots In The Films Of The Coen Brothers

In light of next year bringing the Coens’ seventeenth feature “Hail, Caesar!” and with this year marking the 15th anniversary of “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” and its world-conquering soundtrack, a look back at the duo’s use of POV shots across their filmography is in order.

In a new supercut from Jacob T. Swinney, shots from the Coen Brothers’ films where the camera represents the point of view of characters or objects have been collected into a montage set to Bob Dylan’s “The Man in Me.” It’s a short, tightly edited video that shows how consistent the filmmaking duo’s visual grammar has been, despite changing technologies in cinema, and through the contribution of three different DPs: Barry SonnenfeldBruno Delbonnel and Roger Deakins.
