I had never seen shots held in wide angle like that for such a long time.

PLEASE, tell what you think about the cine and what other modern movies have shots like that and why?
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I love the inesting foreground element it really makes ainteresting composition.

Another interseting shot that shows two important thing in one shot.
PLEASE COMMENT. THANK YOU.
