DJINN Article

DJINN article from OK! Middle East magazine featuring an interview with Hooper, published in October 2013, though I'd suspect the interview was held at least a year before the publication.  If only the film was given the respect to have been seen in France and Japan, and, ahem, the United States.  In any case, this is a nice treat for ya.

Day of the Outlaw (1959)

Cf., additionally:
Lunch date at Café Kitsch in Spontaneous Combustion (1990)
Sarah and Khalid encounter inside elevator in Djinn (2013) (I contend as solid, well-constructed a scene as in any Oscar-baity, sophisticated fare you can think of last year.)

Frames as triangulations, precise shot/reverse shots, evolving frames (not just around tables.)
