pillow shot borrows its name from the de-centering moments of stasis that suspend the narrative flow of Yasujiro Ozu’s later films. The camera lingers for a long moment on an inanimate and seemingly irrelevant object ... “People are perhaps known to be near, but for the moment they are not visible, and a rooftop, a street-light, laundry drying on a line, a lampshade or a tea-kettle is offered as centre of attention.”  Noël Burch
