This article has been thoroughly updated with more explanations and examples, now containing a clip from The Silence of the Lambs (1991) which illustrates the technique being used.

I’ve included a Film Scholar’s Insight analyzing a quote by one of the most successful producers from the ’80s and ’90s. Don Simpson, whose filmography includes Flashdance, Beverly Hills Cop, and Bad Boys, once said: “We have no obligation to make history. We have no obligation to make art.
