There’s a doc by Jon Fauer called Cinematographer Style showing at the Academy next Tuesday (6.27) that, according to the copy on the invitation, “takes audiences into the hearts and minds of 110 renowned cinematographers, offering a rare glimpse into the art of visual storytelling and the universal language of cinematography.” In other words, it covers the same turf as Todd McCarthy and Arnold Glassman‘s Vision of Light, which is generally regarded as the definitive (so far) doc about the art of cinematography. Has anyone seen the Fauer doc? I’m suspicious of anything or anyone intending to explore the art of cinematography that uses the word “style” in its title. Does this mean if you were making a doc about the most venal dictators of all time (Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, etc.), you could conceivably call it Dictator’s Style?
