CINEMATOGRAPHY: SPY VIBERS
Spy Vibers shared some of their favorite cinematography this week and discussed the role of color and black and white imagery in our experiences as viewers. How does a film's patina signify its era? Are there images that remain timeless? And what are the most indelible images in mystery adventure stories? Earlier we posted clips from Jack Cardiff's films, as well as two modern classics, Diva and The Good German. Here are additional color films chosen by our readers: Elio Petri's The 10th Victim (my fave!), Hitchcock's Topaz, Batman, Raising Arizona by the Cohen brothers, American Beauty, and Wong Kar Wai's In the Mood For Love. What are your favorite moments in color?
