Watch: Visually Arresting Ode to 21st Century Cinematographers

Editor Erick Lee has thrown together a stunning compilation of shots from a host of international cinematographers. The theme tying them together? All of the shots were created in the past ten years. Unfortunately, Erick wasn’t able to include some of his favorites. Because he wanted to respect the cinematographers’ work by not re-cropping 16×9 media, he could only include movies that were shot around a 2.40:1 aspect ratio. As a result, scenes from “Children of Men” by Emmanuel Lubezki, “Prisoners” by Roger Deakins, “Hugo” by Robert Richardson, and “Only God Forgives” by Larry Smith, didn’t make it into the cut. Still though, it’s a good century to be watching movies.
