Students keep pointing to the last shot in TAXI DRIVER, as well as the final crane in GONE WITH THE WIND.... Those might be of help?

"That there exists a CÚline Dion antisexist dancehall-reggae
anthem is nothing short of the sort of Ripley's Believe It or Not
item that makes it a joy each morning to wake up alive."

Subject: [SCREEN-L] God's-Eye POV

Dear all;
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?
