The Brave One
I went and saw "The Brave One" this week and I really enjoyed it. Masterfully shot by my friend Philippe Rousselot, it stayed with me long after it was over. There were a few clunkers in it: too many one-liners as Jodie shot bad guys. One particularly bad shot/cut as a bad guy was shot in extreme close-up and went down, but overall I really liked it. The dolly work, by New Yorker Keith Bunting, was beautifully done. My buddy Neil Norton also did a great job operating (I'm sure Keith made him look good though). I highly recommend it.
