5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Rembrandt With a Camera 20 de agosto de 2011
Por Brad Baker - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: DVD
Among Italian cinematographers, only one name really stands out: Mario Bava(see "A Drop of Water" from his "Black Sabbath" trilogy). But the most important person in the history of color cinematography is surely Jack Cardiff. Scottish documentarian Craig McCall spent thirteen years tracking down a list of people needed to give the proper insight to the work of Cardiff, who passed away, sadly, just before this film was completed. The participants were more than happy to talk about the man they called the greatest cinematographer of all time. The DVD includes directors Richard Fleischer, Peter Yates, and Martin Scorsese and actors Lauren Bacall, Charlton Heston, John Mills, and Kirk Douglas. Jack Cardiff's career spans the entire history of motion pictures, from the silent era to today's high definition technology. Cardiff started as a child actor in English silent films, and graduated to become a camera operator. Later, his career as a Technicolor cinematographer blossomed. You've heard of "painting with a camera". Cardiff "painted with a camera". Literally. He was a classic painter himself, studying and re-drawing Rembrandt and other artists. He mastered cinema "paint on glass". His love of classical painting and color technology produced some of the richest, most strikingly beautiful films ever made. The real star of "Cameraman" is the glorious, fully-restored clips from "Black Narcissus", "The Red Shoes", "Pandora and the Flying Dutchman", "The African Queen, "The Magic Box", "The Vikings", and "The Barefoot Contessa". An extended analysis of "Black Narcissus" reveals a powerful study about nuns converting a brothel into a chapel in Nepal. Striking outdoor sequences on windy mountain cliffs were shot, not on location, but in London at Pinewood Studios: Cardiff movie magic. In 1953, actor Errol Flynn hired Cardiff to direct "William Tell", and constructed a Tyrolean village in Courmayeur, Italy, in the valley below Mont Blanc. Flynn invested most of his entire personal fortune($500,000) before the Italian backers ended funding. About 30 minutes of footage was completed, and the film was never released. The Alpine village set was torn down in 1979. Several brief color scenes remain, with Flynn in action. No sound-track has ever been found. More extensive scenes can be found in the 2005 documentary "Adventures of Errol Flynn". Jack Cardiff received two Academy Awards: one in 1947 for Cinematography, and an honorary Oscar in 2001. Cardiff died on April 22, 2009, at the age of 94. The DVD is in anamorphic 1.78 with high quality film clips. Generous extras include "Interview with Craig McCall", "Jack's Actress Portraits", with shots of his photos of Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren, and more, and "Jack's Behind the Scenes", with 16mm home movies on the sets of "African Queen, "The Vikings", and "Legend of the Lost", with John Wayne. You also get "Cinematographer/Director Relationship", "Working with Three-Strip Technicolor", a "Photos Gallery", and the trailer. Late in the film, Cardiff is seen in France at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. Walking with the interviewer, Cardiff strolls throught the festival grounds. Young movie fans stop, and look, and wonder: Who is that famous old man? Cardiff laughs and tells the interviewer: "These young kids have no idea who I am. Sometimes they ask me, and I say: I'm the stand-in for Frank Sinatra."

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas A JOYFUL LOOK AT A CAMERMAN FOR THE AGES 5 de octubre de 2012

I first saw this intimate and informative documentary on TCM, and was so impressed that I immediately went online, found it on Amazon, and ordered a copy. Jack Cardiff's body of work is impressive, but it's his self deprecating personality, seemingly uneffected by his successful porfolio, that caught my eye. In the infancy of color cinimetography, the Technicolor people were looking for cimematographers in England to train to use their unique three strand system. Grilled by the Technicolor staff with highly technical questions, Cardiff simply said, "Well, I'm not really a very technical person. I just look at beautiful paintings and copy the lighting." They selected him, to his surprise, and the rest is history. Cardiff's early camera work for brilliant British director Michael Powell yielded: A Matter of Life and Death (Stairway To Heaven), Black Narcissus, and The Red Shoes. Cardiff's delightful interview is evenly spaced throughout the film, along with Marty Scorsese, Lauren Becall, Kim Hunter, Thelma Schoonmaker, Alan Parker and many others. Scorsese's revelation that he styled the fight scenes in Raging Bull after The Red Shoes' ballet sequences is worth the price of this DVD alone. So is the behind-the-scenes look at the making of Black Narcissus. Cardiff's prolific crareer spanned seventy years. CAMERAMAN, is a delightful and informative look at the life and career of one of cinematography's giants.

I learned much from this documentary, especially the info concerning the application of the original IB Technicolor. Cardiff's explanation of techniques involved in the making of his many films, including Black Narcissus and The Red Shoes is fascinating!

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Close Look at the Work of one of Cinema's Unsung Heroes 26 de noviembre de 2013

The cinematographer Jack Cardiff might not be that well known. but he worked as director pf photography on some seminal productions, notably for Powell and Pressburger in the late 1940s. The visual style of THE RED SHOES (1948) and BLACK NARCISSUS (1947) is chiefly down to Cardiff's brilliant photography, allied to Powell's imagination. Cardiff began his career in the 1930s working on quota quickies in the British film industry, and was still working in 2007-8, when much of this documentary was filmed. In between he worked on other seminal productions, notably THE AFRICAN QUEEN (1951), THE BAREFOOT CONTESSA (1954), and THE VIKINGS (1957). Cardiff comes across as a modest person with a highly developed visual intelligence. The documentary also contains reminiscences from stars who are no longer with us, such as Sir John Mills, and Kathleen Byron, as well as such luminaries as Scorsese. Definitely worth a look for anyone interested in photography in the pre-digital era.
