With its split-personality story line, Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel raised questions about the nature of the self; Mamoulian evokes those questions cinematically in this subjective sequence, asking us to identify with the protagonist’s point of view while reminding us that we are only ever looking through the inhuman “eye” of a machine.
