For Your Consideration: Best Cinematography

ICYMI I ran a fun list of outsider candidates for this stellar year of expert cinematography. Included were such diverse ranging titles as the euro single take Victoria, the chillingly sexy Ex Machina, and the iPhone ingenuity of Tangerine. But my true favorite among the bunch is Danny Cohen’s masterfully economical work in Lenny Abrahamson’s Room. His work blew me away initially for how he captures Jack’s ignorance to the limitations of his tiny home by finding an unexpected amount of visual variety within the cramped space, and like the film itself, his work has lingered since. Here’s hoping his name can make it in among the heavyweights competing for space in an always dynamic category.
