This month, as the year winds down, we've been taking several looks back at the films that grabbed out attention on the big screen this year. Most of the retrospective videos have been very general, including the best and worst of 2014, while others have been more specific about highlighting individual favorites of the year. Now we have a retrospective that gets even more specific by highlighting some of the gorgeous cinematography that was pleasing to the eye this year. From Christopher Nolan's Interstellar to Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu's impressive Birdman, cinema looked stunning this year, and here's the proof. Watch!
Here's Vimeo user Jacob T. Swinney look at the Cinematography of 2014 (via Movies.com):
Set to the fantastic musical work of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross with the track "Sugar Storm" from Gone Girl, this is a great collection of the fantastic work done by cinematographers this year. Roger Deakins turned in some stellar imagery in Angelina Jolie's Unbroken, while Jeff Cronenweth made Gone Girl look incredible. But it really seems like the frontrunner and likely Oscar winner is Emmanuel Lubezki for his unbelievable work in Birdman. He's just coming off a win last year for Gravity, and he's one of the most impressive directors of photography today. Which film had the best cinematography in 2014?
