Beasts Of No Nation has just been released worldwide on Netflix today and will be in a few selected theaters in the US as well, I've seen it this morning and found it to be absolutely outstanding. Contrary to Fukunaga's previous projects (except his Sleepwalking In The Rift short shot on a 5D), this wasn't shot on film, but rather, as he said it in an interview on Hitfix, on the Alexa with Panavision C-series lenses, he talked about shooting it on super 16 at first, but there were no labs around and it would have taken a week for them to get the dailies back and it was just impossible, so he chose the Alexa.

 

I wanted to know what you guys think about it, it looks absolutely gorgeous, very naturalistic, with those characteristic anamorphic flares, blue streaks, and barrel distortion, the Panavision anamorphic look, it also had some beautiful bloomy qualities on whites in one scene in particular, also, Fukunaga not only wrote and directed the movie, he also DPed and operated the camera himself as his camera operator pulled his hamstring one day in. Quite the astonishing feat !

 

 

See this movie.

Definitely a must see movie. 

 

It is quite interesting and poetic and although it is very crude, Fukunaga shows us his perception of reality and rawness with some sweetness too, as always! 

Even if you don't like Fukunaga's movies, go and see it or watch it on Netflix, it is a great movie and it is worth the time watching it. 

 

I liked the way he used "infrared" to show how the kid enters a world of drugs, war and hallucinations! very inspired by Richard Mosse! (http://flavorwire.co...-war-torn-congo)

 

Have a good day!
