Thanks for the message.
 
Maybe I should clarify my topic. I totally aggree that light is used
for mood and time of day in any film, but I was curious about the
exceptions in whech a direct went out of his way to use light as part
of the plot or theme. Sybollically... allagorically. I see what you
mean, though, even if light is used symbolically, it is still only a
tool with which to convey a greater message.
