The Cinematography of “The Insider” (1999)
Cinematographer: Dante Spinotti
Nominated for the 2000 Academy Award for Best Cinematography and Best Picture
Love the cinematography of Insider! I have one question
though, wasn’t the film shot in 2:35? Thanks for your great
It was shot 2:35. Unfortunately it hasn’t been released in an HD format yet except on tv. So this is an HD tv rip and they pretty much always use the same 16:9 aspect ratio for all their television releases. When it is released on blu-ray I’ll post it again. But it’s better than nothing for now.
In his later years Sydney Pollack would purposely frame shots with people at opposite edges of the frame so that his movies couldn’t be cropped to a different aspect ratio.
