Feeling Underexposed?

We invite you to spend the weekend with Gordon Willis. Well, sort of.

The two of you can start here before spending a little time in pleasant conversation with the folks from Scene Unseen. Afterward, some reflection from Doug Hart, Gordon Willis' former right hand man.

Finally, unwind with this marvelous little documentary entitled Vision of Light: The Art of Cinematography.

Part Two.
Part Three.
Part Four.
Part Five.
Part Six.
Part Seven.
Part Eight.
Part Nine.

A few night caps:

And finally...

We can't help but think that Stardust Memories is the most under appreciated film of the last 30 years---they probably love it in France. We'd love to ask Gordon Willis what he considers his best work. You know how we'd vote.

If you know of other worthwhile Gordon Willis stuff, please leave a comment. We're sure there is more out there.

(HT: Tim, for the Doug Hart material. Invaluable.)
