Love this sooo much!!!! I completely agree with the point that you made, I'd even argue that the way something is executed, the more grounded aspects of filmmaking such as camera work or special effects (more grounded as in the aspects of film that separate reality from the screen), automatically hold more meaning and are way more impressive if they are primarily there to support the story. Paradoxically, what casts the special effects in leading roles is treating them as extras.
