Known primarily for his documentaries Man on Wire and Project Nim, Marsh’s probing style feels right at home in grittier genre fare like Shadow Dancer. Instead of resorting to a handheld style to create feelings of anxiety, Marsh’s camera waits patiently for characters to react within stressful situations.

Working from Tom Bradby’s screenplay (based on his book), the sometime documentarian [James Marsh] gives his material edgy life via his economy of style, with his framing exhibiting an unfussy, astute attention to spatial power dynamics—even in a seemingly simple shot-countershot sequence of advancing/retreating close-ups—that reveal him to be an assured classicist.

In Shadow Dancer, Marsh captures subtle, humanizing gestures, as when an IRA activist nervously fingers his watch before a hit. He tends toward longer shots that linger on his subjects for that extra beat, often unearthing some telling detail or human flaw in the process.
