Went to a preview screening last night. Visually and cinematographically I thought it was a beautiful film.

It's a fictional telling of the workings of Diane Arbus' thoughts and personality, but it uses a not too distant reality to really express it to us. The color palette is really interesting, borrowing from the 50's and 60's era and birth of a real consumer culture in America.

Just beware the first scene in the film...old person nudity, not fun.

But Nicole Kidman ruined the whole film with her vapid acting. Nothing too innovative about the cinematography, though.

True, nothing especially "innovative". But the art design together with the great lighting job was very well done, my eyes were glued to the screen the entire time.

It's not possible or even necessary for innovation to always be an aspect of every artistic endeavor. In fact, it would get boring very quickly if every movie you saw tried to out-innovate the previous movie.
