As an American, there's something... different about British cinematography when I watch British movies and TV. It's not just the frame rate. Does anybody else notice this? Is there a name for it or something that explains the anthropology or is there an evolutionary explanation for why it's different?


Might be wrong, but I tend to think that shows/films here stay close to the actors' faces most of the time rather than sitting back and including a bit of scenery. Maybe a lower budget for sets than in the US? Just guessing.
