Dutch Angle

When I was six I had a hard time figuring out the geometry of building interiors for villain hideouts on Batman.  The idea that the tilt was an artistic camera effect was a bit beyond me - obviously crooks lived in crooked buildings. Sometimes they would tilt to the right and at other times to the left, even when the camera was facing the same wall. Eventually I figured it out - The Joker, Riddler, Catwoman and all of the other arch-villains constructed their headquarters on seesaws.
