I'm looking for some films that were mostly lit using practicals to use as a reference point for an upcoming shoot I'm doing. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Kubrick's movies, particularly "Eyes Wide Shut".

"Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" used minimal lighting too.

one of my first topics posted here was about a little student short i shot 2 years ago (damn, 2 years!) on 16mm using practical lightning only.

heres the link
the board doesnt seem to be showing the last few stills, but it works if you copy and paste the url minus the [img] - tags...

feel free to ask questions...

Your link was very helpful, Alex; I´m glad you digged it out!. Any other movies with that approach, guys? I´ll be DPing my first feature (indie and on HD with final tranfer to 35mm) in 4 months, and we are starting pre-production in 3 weeks. My intention is to light mainly with practicals.

Thanks in advance. Cheers.
