    Good work Rodney – I wouldn't have picked up on this, and sometimes I am guilty of heavy duty newspaper scans.

    Zodiac was such a beautifully shot film – an outstanding exercise in digital cinematography. American Gangster also looked great – interestingly, all of Ridley's films look kinda similar, which suggests he picks DOPs who are on his wavelength.

    Obviously Mr Savides was a collaborative artist of the first order.
