Cameraman: The Life and Work of Jack Cardiff

Even if you are not familiar with cinematographer Jack Cardiff's incredible technicolor work, this is an excellent documentary. It treats him as an artist, someone who mastered a new medium by applying the aesthetics of paint. He's a remarkable man, who spent about eighty years in the film business. I am particularly in love with the work he did with Powell and Pressburger. Black Narcisuss is a moving painting, a masterpiece. Some shots below.
