Well to tell you the least I was AMAZED.

I had never seen shots held in wide angle like that for such a long time.
Everyshot was interesting and the more you observe the more you discover.
PLEASE, tell what you think about the cine and what other modern movies have shots like that and why?

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Thank You

The thing I remember most about "The Graduate" as far as cinematography is the incredible use of zooms. Zooms are horribly done most of the time, but they really worked for the story, and were expertly planned out in this case.

Mike Nichols next movie was "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?," which I highly recommend you watch too!

I want to say one word to you Ckulakov. Just one word. Are you listening?

Plastics.

DP Robert Surtees's use of hard-lighting in The Graduate is a real study. He uses light and dark beautifully throughout to express Benjamin's moral dilemma -- between his "light" and "dark" nature ("Hello darkness my old friend." B) ).

I also love a lot of the inventive compositions. For some reason these POV's of Benjamin looking up from the swimming pool have always been favorites of mine:
