Does anyone know what this was shot on? Did it get a DI or optical post-flow? It's a fine little movie. Mixed lighting techniques from various B&W eras. Some Citizen Cane angles. Fun stuff for a DP's eyes. You'd think it would go higher on the list of referrals when someone comes on asking for B&W examples.

35mm Eastman Kodak, spherical lenses, 1:85 aspect ratio shot in 1999 in B&W, no stars, made in Long Island New York, made it into Sundance so I would venture to say this is a Plain Jane production with little or no frills, written to be shot on B&W to save money without losing production value. Let me further venture and say it they printed dallies so was most likely cut traditionally on a Moviola or flatbed again to save cash so every penny could be put on the screen. I was surprised to find it was shot on 35mm, I woulda guessed 16, if asked, BUT that said, I love this little off beat film and would definitely also recommend it to anyone who loves Noir of the 30s and 40s but also likes a good laugh.
