The Third Man – Analyzed Cinema

Mastering Composition with the Canon of Design


Welcome back everyone! Thanks for joining in today, and for all of the awesome support!

We are going to be taking a look at a film that comes highly recommended from my friend Eric; movie buff, video store owner, and all around cool dude. The movie is called “The Third Man” with Orson Welles and it is part of the prestigious Criterion Collection for a reason. You’ll see why when we take a look at all of the amazing techniques used in the movie. It’s a visual masterpiece from 1949 (which is also out of print), and has endless inspiring scenes. Let’s get into it!

SPOILER ALERT!!! There are tons of screenshots showing tons of techniques, so don’t let this ruin the movie for you if you haven’t seen it yet. Or, you can read this article and have a greater appreciation for the movie as you watch it. Up to you my friend!
