The Official Thread of Cinematography

edited August 2010 in Life
From Kurosawa to to Kubrick what scenes, techniques, ideas do you love? Anyone wish to share their sources of inspiration? It all hopefully will find a home here.

One scene in particular I remember is from I Am a Fugitive from a Chain Gang is the unintentional, but all the more epic ending when he flees into the darkness proclaiming, "I'll steal!" It truly shows the hollowness of the law. Lol @ the irony of a truly honorable and prominent figure being for into degeneracy BY the law. Another is the quality of focus in Welles's Citizen Kane (which I think I might watch again ....)


Also, I love how well all of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey was choreographed with the musical score. Most particularly the space station scene using An der schönen blauen Donau is my favorite.

Starts at ~8:00
