Cinematography Oscar Contenders this Year?

Recommended Posts

Tom i have seen "Atonement" looks great but but dont think its Oscar worthy . Who knows.

There's nothing more painful to watch than an actress that is trying too hard to act.

Sure there is. An unattractive actress who is trying too hard! ;)

I finally saw There Will Be Blood. I thought the photography was very good, but not as good as No Country. In fact, I thought the photography on Blood was a little overhyped. The art direction and Lewis' performance are what really impressed me! The soundtrack was great, too.

 

It's my understanding that Blood and No Country were shot in the exact same desert. I thought Blood was shot during some really terrible times of day - right at high noon. I would personally never shoot in a desert like that when the light is directly overhead. It's just ugly and un-cinematic. I did like some of the camera moves, and some of the dark, close-up shots of Lewis talking. The end sort of drifted into Howard Hughes, Citizen Kane territory... stuff I have seen in movies before.
