Capturing the shots that made me gasp at the movies in 2009.
#2: Katherine Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” (click to enlarge).
I’m usually not a fan of Barry Ackroyd’s gritty, over-lit, under-stylized cinematography, as displayed in the films of Ken Loach or in “United 93″. But this shot - framed by the fire from a suicide truck - blew me away.
