Jeff Bernstein Posted March 28 Author Share Posted March 28 (edited) Extraordinarily common film technique. RENI, Guido, Crucifixion of St Peter (1604–05), Oil on canvas, Vatican. The human race : Look how bored the guy at the top looks!Here we have a colossally common film technique from the silent era to the present day (e.g., Alma throughout Phantom Thread)— the guy's face is both light and dark! In this instance, one wonders why. Theory : he is actually not a terrible human being, but has been tasked with this unhappy assignment. So it's St Peter—or him.
