Visions Of Light
Last night I watched Visions Of Light: The Art Of Cinematography, and while the picture quality of many of the clips left much to be desired, the skill and artistry of all the work featured came through loud and clear. As a result, I found myself ordering a bunch of DVDs from Amazon today, as well as pulling from my shelves a dozen or so titles I now feel the need to watch again. Presenting a chronological history of cinematography from the silent era through to the late 1980s, this documentary is, quite simply, essential viewing for any film lover. Just be prepared to spend a small fortune on DVDs afterwards.
