Top Ten Best Cinematographers
The Top TenXW
He is the best cinematographer in the world, because he is the God of chiaroscuro!
His work in many movies amazes me
The man has 11 oscar nominations and no win what is going on Hollywood!?
The absolute master. When he needs to disappear into the background and let the story tell itself, he does so while maintaining well formed images. When he needs to grab your attention, he does so with as much beauty and capability as any in his field.
His abilities with lighting are brilliant, and each shot is framed to perfection. He is able to slip genres from thriller, to comedy, to war, and can wow whether in black and white or colour.
He is proficient in his trade, with a long list of notable films, from "Shawshank Redemption", "Skyfall", and "No Country for Old Men", and has been working steadily in the industry for over 40 years. He is as reliable as they come, and continues to develop his craft, never being satisfied with relying on old techniques.
He is truly the master, and deserves to top this list.

The cinematographer for the 191 "Cabinet of Dr. Caligary." I think he did some Nazi olympics stuff too. Genious! but messed up.
