Ode to (21st Century) Cinematographers

We've featured plenty of tributes to some of the great directors working in film today, including the likes of Tim Burton and Christopher Nolan, but what about the cinematographers who make their films look absolutely gorgeous? Well, editor Erick Lee took it upon himself to pay tribute to some of the great directors of photography of the 21st century, including Emmanuel Lubezki (Gravity, Children of Men), Roger Deakins (Skyfall, True Grit), Robert Richardson (Django Unchained, Inglourious Basterds), Matthew Libatique (Black Swan) and much more. As you would expect, it's a beautiful video with spectacular shots.

Here's an Ode to (21st Century) Cinematographers made by Erick Lee (found via The Playlist):

Now before anyone starts complaining about any exclusions (see the full list of all included movies and cinematographers right here), Lee explains that "this is a compilation of some of my favorite shots from numerous cinematographers from around the world, roughly during the past decade. Due to not only wanting to keep a consistent look, but to also respect the cinematographers' work by not re-cropping 16×9 media, I only used movies that were shot around a 2.40:1 aspect ratio." Even with those parameters, some of the most gorgeously shot films are on display here, and maybe some that you haven't seen and will seek out.

One of the few that I wish could've or should've been included, was Mihai Malaimare, Jr. His work on The Master is exceptional.
