Great pics, Annihlation, First Man and Roma are especially pretty

All those red light bulbs strung from high above were so beautifully haunting in A QUIET PLACE

Lukasz Zal is the only credited cnematographer on Cold War.
As far as I know Ryszard Lenczewski got sick during the pre-production of Ida and never worked again.

Sean Bobbitt shot Widows.

Great picks! The only one I’m missing here is Mandy.

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterTim

The best thing about "Roma" is that splendid Black and White cinematography. And Lady Gaga could not have asked for a better shot film

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered Commenterjaragon

Annihilation is such a great achievement - I can't think of another movie that has such creepy visuals that are also strikingly beautiful.

January 20, 2019 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca

Where's Mandy?
