Here is the reason why All Quiet On The Western Front won the Best Cinematography award at Oscars 2023!
Coming to the things that are pretty well away from many films that are there present in the industry then it is because of lightning which remained quite a horror and supernatural in the category.
This cinematographer named James has defined everything in his way from the long angles to the light at night.
One can easily notice the shade which is illuminating something but it is another thing like a photograph rather than a running video.
The best example can be seen in the dining room as well as the moment when one officer was shot by a baby boy. The ongoing angles and lighting give a perfect visual.
James Friend’s cinematography was nothing but a spectacle to the eyes when decided to amalgamate the lightning with the genre. As per his favorite theme horror, James decided to opt for a large shooting format.
From the very start scene when the boys were called by officers and then went on a mission, it appears to be one take. The wide field view with Alexa 65 and the night-time favor of Sony Venice, all were taken to the depth, but not Abyss for sure.
From Albretch’s stealing and dying to Paul’s facing absurdity, words were taken down by Edward Berger, Lesley Paterson, and Ian Stokell, the writers. It may not push or pull punches but showed potential with settings, lighting, characters, designs, and touches.
All in all, apart from a grander story and theme, the other aspects remained catching and fulfilling to the art of cinema. It is a grueling work that made it beyond a theatrical release, even after getting into the online hub of Netflix.
