“There’s an art to manipulating a moviegoing audience. Every movie practices this art. Filmmakers have to sculpt their viewers’ responses to their work, even if only to a limited extent; some do it less than others, or perhaps they do such a good job exploiting our emotions that we don’t notice it. Those films function like invisible clockwork. Others leave their gears exposed. We can see the parts of the machine ticking.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
