A cinematographer’s job is undoubtedly important beyond words. How do you quantify or summarize the job of the person tasked with making sure each and every shot is what the director envisioned, that the movie’s aesthetics are cohesive, and that the lighting is just right? It’s impossible. What is possible, though, is paying respect to the movies with the best cinematography.
Many assume the director is the one behind the camera, but this isn’t always the case. Often, it’s the cinematographer (or director of photography, as they are sometimes called) who instructs the camera operators at the instruction of the director. For this reason, the cinematographer’s task is to listen to the director and make sure their crew captures the director’s wishes with the camera. It’s all very complex, which makes these examples of the best cinematography all the more impressive.
