Rodrigo Prieto is an excellent cinematographer with a sensitive eye for detail. His subtle approach on “Brokeback Mountain” demonstrates that he is completely committed to only those strokes that are relevant to the telling of the story, and not simply creating images for his DP reel. To be included among such lush filmic pieces such as “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Good Night, And Good Luck,” also point to the ASC’s good judgment and sense of fair play. My hat is off to them.
