One of the main purposes of the invisible style is to hide the bias and view of the director. The audience will connect with the film more if they are viewing it through the characters eyes instead of some unattached floating perspective. As a film maker I know this in the back of my head but it was helpful to be reminded of this factor. This is a typical Hollywood technique, and there is a reason it works, but don't be afraid to experiment. As long as you are aware of how the angles in your shot affect the audiences perspective you can do whatever you want.
