I was just watching the trailer for THE GOOD GERMAN on the internet. Even with the compression I thought
the cinematography was really fantastic. Great black and white. I can hardly wait to see it up on the big screen.
Here's a question: I have read that the film was shot using vintage lenses and equipment. Is it possilbe that an old lens can have a "personality"? Can it really capture light that would remind you of a certain era?
Or is that kind of a thought overly romantic? Will a '40s lens remind you of that time and a '50s lens of that era and so on?
The cinematography in THE GOOD GERMAN is the kind of thing that just BEGS for an in-depth article in
