famed 70s cinematographer Gordon Willis
Willis was still shooting well into the 90's.
Great interview though.

He is one of the DP's I admired the most when I was younger because he got away with so much and he did what he wanted in terms of his work. I saw "Little Murders"some years back and that was a cool film directed by Alan Arkin and it was made before "The Godfather" films. There is a scene where the power goes out in an apartment while a family is having a get together and not only is it is a hilarious scene, the way Gordon lit the dark apt. with candles and well placed under key lighting was a foreshadowing of what he achieved in the Godfather films.
He was "The Master of Dark" and I agree with him about the "Beer Commercial"look which is all too common these days too just in a different generic way....
