I’ve been waiting for a long time Dune by Denis Villeneuve. After first reviews from Venice Festival I became a bit nervous.

A small gallery about the representation of cross in art: how it is interpreted by different artists in painting, photography, cinema and also music.

Cinema August 12, 2020 Cinematography part 1

I love cinematography, it’s essential and directly connected to the directing work. In fact there is a connection between the director of photography (DOP) and movie director. In some cases there are indissoluble unions as Coen brothers and Villeneuve with Roger Deakins , Emmanuel Lubezki with Iñárritu and Cuarón. Cinematography is a complex and controvertial topic at the …
