If you draw enough lines on an image, eventually something will be somewhere on one of the lines.
Yes, but when you use the same grid pattern on an excellently-shot film, you'll see the method behind the madness, and you'll notice that it's not random, but that to make images that are pleasing to the eye you need to strike a visual balance of colors and shapes, by looking through these samples you see that they planned the framing of the characters and props and environment in such a way that the layout and spacing creates a nice sense of contrast and lines that lead your eye to exactly where the director wants you to look, all while developing the characters, story, and world you are in, all while creating some beautiful imagery.
Great work, you've been pinned ;-)
It's just simple framing and the rule of thirds - a basic trick even most amateur photographers are aware of.
I'm not sure if he mathematically planned his shots. But, like one of the replies mentioned. Rule of thirds. Now, Stanley Kubrick on the other hand, is a master. Even Wes Anderson, but his framing is pretty obvious.
