Visions of Light

Visions of Light

Cameramen and women discuss the craft and art of cinematography and of the "DP" (the director of photography), illustrating their points with clips from 100 films, from Birth of a Nation to Do the Right Thing. Themes: the DP tells people where to look; changes in movies (the arrival of sound, color, and wide screens) required creative responses from DPs; and, these artisans constantly invent new equipment and try new things, with wonderful results. The narration takes us through the identifiable studio styles of the 30s, the emergence of noir, the New York look, and the impact of Europeans. Citizen Kane, The Conformist, and Gordon Willis get special attention.

Matt H (fr) wrote: Interesting story, almost too good to be true. Guetta kind of epitomizes what I don't like about modern art and the whole art scene. Still an interesting figure. I don't get the hype of Banksy, he just seems like a great advertiser, much in the way he criticizes Guetta near the end of the film. Guetta himself seems like quite the character.

Amy H (mx) wrote: It's such a pathetic movie there is no recommendation to even turn this movie on running in the background. Poor story, poor acting, poor dialogue and poor makeup! What mutants?!?!! Don't waste time!

Augustine J (fr) wrote: Wonderful movie about relations... Very good performances from all characters... Simple and engaging story

Steve D (es) wrote: Just because it is made for kids and not as good as the series does not mean it is bad. Some good voice actors and the story far more emotional than I would have expected.

Jordan S (es) wrote: An amazing piece of work, well paced, well acted, well directed. Distressing and gritty with outstanding cinematography

Isadore H (ca) wrote: Based on true events after the Munich debacle at the Olympics, and starring Eric Bana, Munich is a film about a small team sent to kill the men who planned the operation. Munich definitely has some good stuff in it, the acting, the cinematography is great, and some good action scenes. My problem with it though is that none of the characters were that relatable. Daniel Craig was the most interesting to me, but even he was a little boring. For a 3-hour movie, Munich is surprisingly short on depth. I never felt much of any of the actions that were made caused anything significant to happen, I know there were some themes about guilt and questioning if they were doing the right thing, but the characters were so thinly written I just didn't care. However, there is just enough interesting things going on in the background that kept me watching it with a little intrigue. Munich is fine, but probably won't blow you away. That sex scene at the end was fucking weird though

Alec B (ru) wrote: The culture clash at the center of the film feels too easy, its more of a product of Hollywood liberalism with clean cut notions about race and language than anything resembling reality. I do like the performances (Tea Leoni in particular) but I think a few more re-writes of the screenplay could have produced stronger film.

Jim H (jp) wrote: A "ladies man," who, despite his claims, routinely "fails" with the ladies, instructs his nephew in the ways of meeting women.This film is truly fantastic, with some witty, sharp dialogue, but its freeze-frame ending, which I won't give away, isn't satisfactory. I really like the idea of Roger's character: it is sharply written by Dylan Kidd, and Campbell Scott plays the oblivious yet confident player to perfection. Jesse Eisenberg is also wonderfully honest and charming as his protege.Overall, I was ready to give this film five stars until the ending, which might appeal to some, but I'm saying too much when I note that there isn't enough change or struggle not to change in a character.

Ale L (es) wrote: This cheap and uninventive knock-off of just about every Disney movie is boring, lame, and stupid. Warner Bros. has ripped-off Disney... SHAME ON THEM!

Kristen A (au) wrote: glad the bad guy got it in the end.

Graham M (au) wrote: Fairly tepid horror noteworthy purely for its major shock value ending.

Miranda B (jp) wrote: I loved the fact that Frank did these movies and was not afraid...dealing with homosexuality, race, drugs...

Jon H (it) wrote: Not bad Colombians vs. Mafia in urban Chicago with Chuckie in the middle. Entertaining enough to cover some serious plot holes.

Collin P (ca) wrote: Over the top silly at points but there is truth within the story and themes and it makes for a truly hilarious time.

james g (de) wrote: Dawn wants to see this movie but does not want to pay $10 for it. Will wait till it's cheaper!!

Tim S (us) wrote: I admit I've never been a huge Fellini fan, but I found Amarcord to be quite engaging. If anything, it's a portrait of humanity at its most interesting. The movie is funny, strange and surreal, but all at the same time being grounded in the reality of the story. The only minor problem that I had with it is its leisurely pace during portions of the film when you just want to move on to the next adventure. I may be alone, but I felt it watching it. Otherwise, the film is a wonderful look at growing up through the eyes of Fellini.

Sanford R (jp) wrote: Pretty awesome, but I didn't like how the dachshunds kept getting Brutus into trouble when they were the ones causing all the mess. Still, its a fun movie!

Augustine H (it) wrote: Liz Taylor is glamorous. It's Laurence Harvey that should be knocked down instead of her. But the whole story couldn't make me care less.

Jacob T (ca) wrote: This is a remake that is better then the original. This is the best Godzilla movie. This have got to be the best scenes fiction movie I have ever seen. See it. It will blow your mind
