Comparison I’ve been meaning to do for awhile. I don’t think these shots’ similarity was an accident.
- Claudia and Madeleine are both wearing green, signaling youth, envy, (Madeleine’s might also relate to her still being part of nature, as a mortal).
- Louis and Lestat are both wearing warm colors (purple & red), being in positions of power.
- Lighting is reversed; Lestat is back-lit and Louis is front-lit.
- Louis and Lestat are looming into frame from the upper right, Claudia and Madeleine are pushed back, and react from the lower left.
- Claudia and Madeleine’s reactions are different but similar in their initial expression and silence.
