a student of mine is engaged in a research project exploring the history, use and implications of the God (or God's-Eye) POV shot. We've ticked off the usual suspects (Hitchcock; Von Trier etc) and are wondering if you know of any examples off-hand, or of any attempts to theorise this shot in particular?
