Getting Cinemate: Aspect Ratio (Illustration)

Two more frames for you to compare aspect ratios. I have tried to find similar frames from two different films shot in different aspect ratios. In fact, being a cinemascope film is one of the reasons that make Pakeezah such a pure cinematic experience.
The funny thing is that the effect is subconscious and most of us do not know what is actually great about a certain film that appeals us. 'Getting Cinemate' is an attempt to understand such things better.

  1. I have always been in awe of Pakeezah. Now I know one more reason why.
