Moonlight From Behind. 

Throughout Barry Jenkins' Oscar-winning film, Moonlight, the director employed a number of shots from behind, which have all been grouped together in a supercut by UK editor Ollie Paxton. This type of frame "beautifully captures the characters' insecurities, personalities and isolationism," Paxton writes of the clip, which features composer Nicholas Britell's Moonlight score, "The Spot."
