The Movie Geeks speak with acclaimed Best Cinematography nominee Phedon Papamichael (The Descendants, Sideways) about his stunning work in director Alexander Payne's Nebraska.
The Movie Geeks celebrate the art of cinematography in this week-long series featuring interviews with some of our most accomplished and esteemed directors of photography.
In this episode, cinematographer Phedon Papamichael discusses his approach to lensing the remarkable films that grace his resume, including Sideways, 3:10 to Yuma, W., Knight and Day, The Ides of March, and The Descendants.
Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness follow up on last week’s hilarious discussion about “The Price is Right” by discussing Lily Holleman’s appearance on that television institution, analyzing how she won, what she won and what it means tax-wise for people who do win on game shows.
Then, Dean and Phil wrap up their ongoing discussion of the eight ways our brains “lie” to us every day by discussing stereotyping.
Phil takes time to remember a “friend of the family” who died this month, a self-made man who went from 14 year-old dropout to hairdresser to successful producer.
Finally, next week is our annual look at the top films of the previous year, so Dean and Phil have been watching a ton of movies and this leads to a discussion of The Hunt, HBO’s True Detective and Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” with Joss Whedon receiving both a tip of the cap AND a stern wag of the finger!
All that, plus Lawrence Welk!?
