Cameras in the Movies / TV / Media If you are a photographer, it's difficult not to appreciate movies too. In this forum you can discuss movies, as well as the cameras used in them. What camera used in what film / TV show etc has long been a topic of discussion at RFF. Whether the Exakta and 400mm Kilfitt lens in Hitchcock's Rear Window or the Nikons in Eastwood's Bridges of Madison County, cameras are tools which reflect the time and technology of the film.

Netflix Photography Movie Recommendations

Any suggestions for movies/shows on Netflix with good cinematography or about photography that are worth the time?

John

Netflix offers different content in different countries.

In the UK "McCullin" is a great documentary about a great photographer.

Watch Transformers: Dark of the Moon with the sound off. Mind blowing.

Depending on availability

  • Amelie.
  • Bill Cunningham.
  • Gerhard Richter Painting (I find it very interesting even though it doesn`t have much to do with Photography - just generally how an artist of that stature works).
  • City of men.
  • The big picture.

Anything by Mario Bava, a 60's/70's Italian horror film director who stated in cinematography: Black Sunday, Black Sabbath, Bay of Blood, Kill Baby Kill up on Netflix along with others

Ida is also available on Netflix -- haven't seen yet but is supposed to be amazing.

Though not on Netflix, this film, The Fifth Cord, I often go back to as an amazing work I cinematography. It pert much started multiple Oscar winner Vittorio Storaro's career. I think it's his best work. Full feature is up on Youtube:

Probably not on Netflix but you should try to find any of Andrey Zvyagintsev's films, The Return or The Banishment are both excellent.

If it's available, How to Make a Book with Steidl. Also Which Way to the Front Line from Here


I also echo the recommendation for McCullin and Bill Cunningham, New York. Bill Cunningham is more about fashion, but still a great documentary.

A very good documentary about NY street photographers if you haven't seen it yet.

"Pecker", if on Netflix, gives an usual (and possibly realistic) take on the art world and the celebrity culture associated with it. An old rangefinder camera is prominent in the movie. It's a John Waters film so it may not be for everybody.

Great flick! Alas, type "Pecker" into the Netflix search box and you get Woody Woodpecker. Also enjoyable, but the cinematography leaves something to be desired...

Anybody watch 'Five Broken Cameras' on Netflix? I haven't, but my family think it's funny to say it's my life story.
It looks interesting though.

Great, I have a good list now. Also, I remember seeing someone in RFF mentioned Monk with a Camera as well.
