The Matrix (1999) Directed by Andy and Lana Wachowski
This movie has a reocurring motif of having objects and people viewed through the reflection on a character’s sunglasses
From a framing standpoint this allows an actor to be on screen and for the audience to view their facial expression while avoiding cutting away to what is in front of them.
In a more abstract sense it also adds to a sense of dissociation, for instead of looking directly at something, we are looking at merely a reflection of it.
