I recently came across an essay online that was solely concerned with the relative positions, i.e. standing or sitting, of the characters in the movie of DOUBLE INDEMNITY. It came complete with diagrams illustrating the patterns created, something like so: xxXX or xXxX, etc. I guess if I'd read the essay I'd know what the patterns signified. (And then again, maybe I still wouldn't know.)
