This article is a fascinating deconstruction of one scene in Hitchcock's "Dial M for Murder." The scene is the one where Milland talks to Swan, the man he is recruiting to murder his wife. This scene lasts over 20 minutes, a substantial part of the film. The article takes apart the interesting camera work and the positioning of the actors and the camera. It's well worth a read.
