There's also Rocky IV which, even during gritty boxing sequences filled with contrasty hardlight, sweat and blood, contains many shots dropped in apparently randomly with stockings behind the lens, very soft and halated and lower contrast- and then back to the clean shots again- his use of such tricks is SO intelligent, whether it's artistically motivated or just something that helps with the practicalities of filmmaking-
then there are his almost subliminal but again hugely noticable split diopters dropped around anything from the Rockys to Can't Stop The Music- how does this guy produce such paradoxically brilliant work and NEVER get called up on for treading so irresponsibly on that thin line between artistic experimentation and technical standards? It's all SO inspiring and refreshing!
I'd love for anyone who has worked with the guy to share more secrets and tricks- I know many here have been on his sets-
does anyone else have an opinion on this enormously talented cameraman?
