Oscar D.P. Contenders Downplay Tools, Play Up Visual Language

For the first time in the 88-year history of the Oscars, no film nominated for cinematography was shot on 35 mm film. But fans of emulsion — who include top-flight directors like Steven Spielberg, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino — can take consolation from the fact that two of the nominated movies were photographed analog, albeit in nonstandard film formats: Super 16 (“Carol”) and Ultra Panavision 70, a 50-year-old large-format anamorphic film gauge resurrected by Tarantino, Panavision and three-time Oscar winner Robert Richardson for “The Hateful Eight.” 492 more words


The Hateful Eight

There is no mistaking The Hateful Eight as the work of any director other than Quentin Tarantino.

The Hateful Eight

To say I’m disappointed in Tarantino’s latest is an understatement. The Hateful Eight is such a departure from what Tarantino has done before in terms of quality, but a little bit too familiar in terms of how offensive it is, that the more I think about this movie the less and less I like it. 930 more words
