Gore Verbinski and Roger Deakins Are Working on Two New Animated Movies

Gore Verbinski and legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins worked together on the animated film Rango, and now it looks like the two are reuniting for not one but two new animated features. Verbinski revealed the news himself, although he also remained a little tight-lipped about what we can expect. We know two things for sure: neither animated feature will be a Western, like Rango, but one of them is a musical. Gore Verbinski hasn’t made a film since 2016’s criminally underrated A Cure For ...

‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’, New Joel Coen Movie With Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, Was Shot in Black-and-White

The Tragedy of Macbeth, Joel Coen‘s first movie without brother Ethan, doesn’t have a release date yet, but here’s hoping we can see it this year. As we wait for some sort of release announcement (and a trailer, please?), we now have some news: the film was shot in black-and-white by cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel. This is news that will no doubt make some cinephiles (like me, for instance) start watering at the mouth. Let us see this movie, damn it! Macbeth has been covered on the big scre...

The media ought to up the standards for what we expect from our next Commander-in-Chief.

Cinematographer Roger Deakins, James Deakins on Team Deakins Podcast

Filmmakers all use the same tools, more or less, but do so with endlessly varied methods, says cinematographer Roger Deakins.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Denis Villeneuve Are Working on a Mystery Project Together

Director Denis Villeneuve is spending some time in the world of Arrakis with his two-part film adaptation of Dune, but it sounds like he might be working with a familiar collaborator again soon.

‘The Matrix’ Cinematographer Blames Stanley Kubrick for Why the Sequels Are So “Mind-Numbing”

It can’t be understated how hugely influential the Wachowski’s The Matrix was. Many a film after it tried (and often failed) to imitate its look, its tone, its groundbreaking visual effects. And the man responsible for the stylish look of the 1999 sci-fi film was cinematographer Bill Pope, who would go on to shoot the film’s much-maligned sequels The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions to less than satisfactory results. There are a lot of things that can singled out for the reasons of Th...

And though the dynamic director and cinematographer duo won’t be working together on Villeneuve’s upcoming sci-fi film Dune, the filmmaker revealed that Deakins is still leaving his mark on the highly anticipated adaptation of the seminal Frank Herbert novel.

"1917" was the first movie to be shot on the Arri ALEXA Mini LF. The movie's cinematographer, Roger Deakins, hand picked the camera because it could provide a top-quality cinematic look, but was small in size. This was vital, as the camera was navigated through some tight areas to pull off the single-shot feel of the movie. Deakins won his second best cinematography Oscar at the Academy Awards on Sunday.

Exploring the Understated Heroism of ‘1917’ and ‘Dunkirk’

Oscars season is a time of the movie-going year unlike any other, seemingly mandating that film aficionados draw imaginary lines in the sand pitting certain works, both past and present, against each other in an occasionally insightful – though oftentimes frustrating – spectacle. Do you think Taika Waititi’s Best Picture nominee Jojo Rabbit goes so far as to make a mockery of sensitive (and unfortunately timely) issues while Terrence Malick’s much less mainstream A Hidden Life deserved...

Why Does Sam Mendes Keep Making Movies That Feel Indebted to Christopher Nolan?

If imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery, then there are a select few living filmmakers whose ears must burn on a regular basis. The frequency of imitation arguably heightens which directors truly are considered among the greatest, or at least the most influential, ever — not many directors would copy someone whose work isn’t up to par. One of the most remarkable cases of imitation comes courtesy of a director who, 20 years ago, burst onto the scene with a debut film that felt def...

1917 Is a Movie About the Horrors of War, Told With a Devotion to Beauty and Life

A good movie can be built from any number of components: a great story, distinctive visuals, a haunting score. But sometimes a face can take you 90 percent of the way. And although Sam Mendes’ extraordinary World War I drama 1917 is notable for the technical feat of its cinematography—Mendes and director of photography Roger Deakins have constructed it to be perceived as one unbroken shot—the true key to its effectiveness is the face of one of its central actors, George MacKay. MacKay plays...

‘1917’ Review: Sam Mendes’ One-Take War Pic is a Technical Marvel Loaded With Emotional Resonance

Not since Mad Max: Fury Road has a film so fully embraced the “motion” part of motion pictures. Sam Mendes‘ jaw-dropping, nerve-jangling World War I epic 1917 is designed to look like one extremely long take from start to finish, resulting in a film that almost never sits still. The clock is ticking, and the narrative thrusts the characters forward as if a strong wind is at their backs. One-take movies are nothing new, and 1917 ran a serious risk of being gimmicky. But Mendes, working with mast...
