Re: Best Cinematography 1991

I voted for JFK. How the film seamlessly blended filmed performances with newsreel footage and dialog/courtroom testimony with flashbacks led to it receiving two of the all-time-most-deserved Oscars for its cinematography and film editing.

What was set off by Harvey Weinstein just keeps snowballing. Now it has moved from Hollywood to Washington.
