    I've already watched it twice. The love of movies is instilled in every frame and by every talking head. For movie fans, that's exhilarating to see.

    I have, and furthermore, I have seen about 98% of the movies referenced in the documentary. I may have missed some of the early silent shorts. Maybe.

    It is a fascinating documentary on many levels. To see the crude camera that was used to film such classics as "Intolerance" along with footage from the film gives me a new respect for was these men accomplished. I enjoyed seeing Kevin Brownlow as well. He seemed to radiate excitement and enthusiasm when discussing the movies and the men who made them. Great documentary.

    Or some more great ones from the Golden Age like Ernest Haller, Tony Gaudio, Joseph Ruttenberg, Arthur Miller, John Alton, and, of course, Leon Shamroy.

    Just finished watching this amazing documentary and plan on watching it again this weekend. I hope we do get a DVD and/or Blu for I have no idea how long it will be until I have to erase it off my DVR.

    Indeed we all hope it will be released on disc. I'm surprised no one has yet mentioned "Visions of Light" the 1992 documentary on cinematography produced by the AFI and NHK, written by Todd McCarthy.

    I urge anyone who hasn't seen it to eagerly seek it out. Difficult to find, but worth every bit of effort.

    Perhaps because we were focusing on this most recent documentary and not that fine documentary.:)

    hope this finds an eventual release, cut the cord many years ago and not willing to give Cox Communications any more money than they deserve, but when programming like this happens, i have to just have a wait an see attitude, walk into the shelf, and pull a title. Cinematography,

    upload_2019-11-22_1-52-0.

    guess i need to give this another spin , honestly i'm a little jealous, because the TCM Doc sounds pretty amazing.

    I think many of us have both of those cinematography documentaries on disc. I have Visions of Light on DVD and Cameraman on Blu-ray.

    Last night, TCM showed an hour-long documentary about John Ford. With all of the extant docs about John Ford, I would guessed the doc shown last night was *not* new, but from the info available on the on-screen program guide - maybe it was. I DVR'd it. Did anybody else?

    Me too. I saw "Visions" in a theater on first release in 1992.

    As the DVD has not been available for years, I wanted to be sure that new cinematography lovers were aware of it. (I confess it's my favorite.) I would love to see it re-released and updated with the superb new transfers we now have available. Many of the film clips on the DVD are from home video sources from the 80's.

    I watched it today and it is a 2019 documentary. Not bad, but, for those that have studied up on John Ford, nothing really new. A complicated man with some personal issues. Kind of common for storytellers.

    Good documentary on Ford with some behind the scenes footage I have not seen before.
