A must see for cinephiles
12 November 2017 | by andy-346-84244See all my reviews

Vic Sarin's film takes quite a different approach to the rather dry 'Cinematographer Style' or the more historical 'Visions of Light', which is also an excellent film. He concentrates on the lives and careers of a few of the greatest cinematographers of our time, rather than trying to provide an overview of the subject as a whole. For me, this really works. We get to know a little about their backgrounds as well as their views on filmmaking. There's some analysis of their most influential work, which is interesting but much of it will be familiar to anyone who's interested in film. However, there's some great anecdotes that were new to me, and some great clips. It's an attractive film. Nicely put together. Well paced, a good length. I can't really think of anything bad to say about it, except that it's rather male and rather white. But that reflects the history of the industry and is not really the filmmakers fault. Hopefully when someone revisits this subject in a few decades that will have changed.
