Favourite Cinematographers #1 : Roger Deakins Movie : The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford (2007) Director : Andrew Dominik (& Writer) Starring : Brad Pitt, Casey Affleck, Sam Rockwell, Jeremy Renner, Sam Shepard, Paul Schneider, Mary-Louise Parker, Zooey Deschanel. I still don't understand two things. How this movie went so overlooked and Why Roger Deakins wasn't given the Oscar for this movie. This movie if not the best was easily one of the best work he has ever done and the use of light and the silhouette shots in the movie are amazing!! Such a beautiful movie and so underrated. The performances were really good, especially Brad Pitt and Casey Affleck. The use of Lens Aberration was cool too. Check this one out!! ______________________________________________ Bonus Fact : Roger Deakins himself considers the Train Robbery Scene in this movie to be his best work yet.
