    I know Rain has a cinematography tourny going, but my question is what is your pick for best cinematography in a motion picture ever?
    Me:
    Robert Richardson for JFK

    Jack Cardiff for The Red Shoes

    Vittoro Storaro for Apocalypse Now, Gianni di Venanzo for 8 1/2, and Geoffery Unsworth/John Alcott for 2001: A Space Odyssey would be my absolute favorites.

    Black and White - Charles Rosher & Karl Struss for Sunrise
    Color - The usual: Freddie Young for Lawrence of Arabia
    Unconventional - Janusz Kaminski for Saving Private Ryan
    Agee, Great Expectations features some of my all-time favorite cinematography (in addition to being a classic film), but I've yet to see Oliver Twist.
    Seeing as how the films share the same director and photographer, can I assume that Oliver is very similar, visually?
