Reverses #2: Love Folds Space and Time

Our continuing series on the power of the reverse shot. Tony Scott’s Déjà Vu riffs off of Hitchcock’s Vertigo with the latest tech.

From Tony Scott's Déjà Vu (2006), featuring Denzel Washington and Paula Patton; cinematography by Paul Cameron; editing by Jason Hellmann and Chris Lebenzon. Part of our series Reverses.

WOW! That’s amazing, Juliet! Is that your upload?
