Roger Deakins

A supercut showing a handful of magnificent scenes from the work of my favorite cinematographer, Roger Deakins:

Sometimes it depresses me that guys like Deakins can create these magnificent images as part of a movie. I mean, the overhead shot of the snow-covered parking lot in Fargo should be framed and hung on a museum wall, but instead, it appears on screen for a couple of seconds and then it’s gone.

On the other hand, there aren’t many “guys like Deakins,” and most of them work with mega-million dollar budgets. In any case, in my book, Deakins is one of the Immortals.

Whose your favorite cinematographer?
