These are great examples, but more specifically I'm looking for POV use that is motivated by something other than suspense. I keep coming up with horror films, but I'm looking for something different. Perhaps for an unusual type of character like a deaf person, an animal, or any situation where POV becomes an integral part of telling the story. Thanks!
I'm not sure why you can't learn anything from the use of POV in Hitchcock's films. Not all the POV shots in "Vertigo" are to generate suspense. Most of the early part of the movie is about Jimmy Stewart following Kim Novak around town.
POV's by nature are psychological more than comedic, since they take you into the subjective world of a character.
Jane Campion often uses odd POV shots, like in "The Piano".
Of course, there's "Being John Malkovich"...

If you can get hold of it, there's a Dutch film called 'Zusje' (Little Sister) that is told entirely through the 'video journal' of the main character.

There's a 'well known' old Americaan black and white film (which I've never watched completely) where the whole story is seen from the main male character's POV throughout the whole film. We never see him apart from once (or twice) when he stands in front of a mirror and then we see his face. Unfortunately, I can't for the life of me remember what the it's called...any takers?
That's Lady of the Lake.
