Best of 2006: Cinematography

If I had any knack for achieving the artistry of filmmaking, instead of just observing it as well and as often as I can, I would love nothing better than to be a gifted cinematographer (or at least a stunning, keenly observant photographer, like Dr. S.). Such is my lot, however, that I can barely take a digital photo without scalping somebody at the top of the frame or planting my fingertip right on the lens. From the abject inadequacy of my own image-making, I absolutely revere the kinds of talent on display for us all in the best-photographed movies of 2006.

And now, only one more category to go... and you know which one that is!

Well, someone has to sit in the theatre. Who is the most important person involved in the making of the film - the audience. Give yourself a round of applause!

Cinematopgrahy is routinely my favourite category. I liked the Marie work, but personally wouldn't nominate it (my list would be The Black Dahlia, Children of Men, Jindabyne, The Prestige and United 93).
