* The great late Creator/OsamuDezaki was fond of these and popularized its use in anime in ''Manga/RoseOfVersailles''. In OniisamaE it's not rare to see him using a diagonal Dutch angle. Combined with rather quick cuts and even montages of Dutch angle shots combined with [[TropeMaker his famed]] PastelChalkedFreezeFrame technique. He used this often daring combination to generate a sense of dislocation to [[RuleOfDrama raise the drama]].

* Masterfully used by John [=McTiernan=] in ''Film/DieHard'' in the scene when Hans and John meet face to face for the first time. John [=McClane=] is unaware (or unsure) of Hans' identity, while Hans perfectly knows who John is. John decides to give Hans a gun to protect himself. For the whole movie [=McTiernan=] uses a straight angle for anything Hans-related (symbolizing Hans' straight, thought-out plan), and a Dutch angle for John (symbolizing his role as a fly in the ointment and his love for [[IndyPloy improvisation]]). Of course, Hans plans to shoot John, but you know before him that the gun is empty... because the camera slowly tilts in the shot of Hans aiming at John.

-->'''[[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Miles Antwiler]]:''' The director only has one style of camera work: shoot everything in an angle. Barry Pepper is running at an angle, JohnTravolta is talking at an angle, Forrest Whitaker is [[ClassicallyTrainedExtra looking embarrassed]] at an angle. Isnít that cool? Its at an angle.

-->'''{{JonTron}}:''' Y'know, I gotta say it's really progressive of the people who made this movie to hire a cameraman with only one arm.
* A spinning one is used in New Moon of the {{Twilight}} saga as Edward breaks up with Bella. Director Chris Weitz does this to create a naseous, disoriented kind of feeling.
