It is always interesting to see directors employ architecture as a compositional grid in a shot. Besides the obvious strict modernist influence in such a method, there is also the small matter of a cinema frame pictorially resembling the page of a comic - with characters conducting their conversation across separate panels. Following are a few such recommendations,

The Thin Blue Line(1988)/ Errol Morris

Vengeance is Mine(1979)/ Shohei Imamura

Harakiri(1962)/ Masaki Kobayashi

Vengeance is Mine(1979)/ Shohei Imamura

X-Ray(1974)/ Krysztof Kieslowski

Jimmy Corrigan/Chris Ware
