Haskell Wexler, RIP

media_xl_3490448Here’s a nice write up about one of America’s finest Cinematographers, who passed away this week at the age of 93. Haskell Wexler has long been a favorite cameraman of mine. “Days of Heaven,” shot entirely in magic hour lighting, is definitely worth rewatching. “Days of Glory” is another superb film of Haskell’s, and features the first use of Steadicam in a movie, operated by it’s inventor Garrett Brown.
