    Default Movies That Use People's Shadows

    Lately I've been thinking about the various movies I've seen that use shadows of people in dramatic ways. But at the moment the only movie I can think of is Clockwork Orange, in the scene where Alex and his droogs are walking up on the homeless drunk at night, with a bright light shining behind the four. I think I recall shadows used in that movie in some other dramatic ways whenever evil Alex is lurking around.

    What are some other examples of movies which use shadows in artistic ways, particularly people shadows?

    Off-the-top-of-my-head:

    -Attack of the Clones before Anakin sets off to rescue his mother "Searchers" style.
    -Paranormal Activity showed a shadow of the demon spirit, if I'm not mistaken.

    Aren't you forgetting one you should know? Older movie, black-and-white...
