In the film Schindler’s List, by Steven Spielberg, an important character is that of Oskar Schindler.

Spielberg carefully uses hand held camera shots, close up and point of view shots to help the viewer see Schindler as powerful, and charismatic at the start of the film, and as a man all-consumed by his guilt at the end.
