Funny thing is that right after I watched it, I turned on the TV and "Conan the Destroyer" was on HDTV; there was a campfire scene where Grace Jones had this amazing close-up lit by Cardiff, reminded me of something from his Powell-Pressburger days, very exotic and moody. Can't say that the movie as a whole though is worth watching, but the moodier scenes have some great lighting.

And people complained about the Sony f900 when that came out.....Jacks 3-strip technicolour camera was the size of a large shed!!
And heavy too! There is a shot in "A Matter of Life and Death" that never really gets discussed, but it amazing in its mastery: a long, unbroken take shot from the patient's POV on a hospital gurney as it is wheeled through a long hallway to the OR room. blows my mind how they pulled that off with such a massive camera...and it seems like it's just floating along!
