Quentin Tarantino's bottom-up - or “trunk” - shots.

He uses it very meticulously to empower the characters. Not only does the shot portray them as a powerful force within the story, but it also jars the audience a bit. Look at how close the eye line is to the camera lens. It is as if they are looking right at you. This shot instills a sort of in your face control in the characters and in doing so, Tarantino establishes his own control over what the audience sees and feels.
