If I was a betting man, I'd put all my chips on this film sweeping this awards season. Really solid. Bradley Cooper knows what he's doing.
Performances are very strong and I love the improv scenes (at least what I think are improv scenes. - "no drink?, no socks?"
Matthew Libatique's cinematography is fantastic. Love the multiple stacked flares from the stage lights. Jaw-dropping.
Arri Alexa Mini, Cooke Anamorphic/i SF and Kowa Prominar Lenses
The Kowa Cine Prominar lenses are vintage Japanese cine primes from the 1960’s. Optically offering low contrast images with a cooler colour transition, and coming with unique warm flare characteristics.
Love Jay Cassidy's editing - very consistent pace. Always engaging.
