Shadow Dancer

Dir: James Marsh
(2012)

‘Cinematographer Rob Hardy give[s] the film a somber look, using low light, unsettling angles and washed- out colors that make the red coat Collette wears to her meetings with Mac pop like a bloodstain’
Hollywood Reporter

‘Chilly grays and nicotine browns predominate in Rob Hardy’s widescreen compositions’
Variety

Interview
Fuji Film Exposure 

‘What makes Shadow Dancer work so well, is the always interesting way it has been shot, full of intriguing angles, shifting reflections, and carefully chosen focal depths. No conversations are conveyed by lazy over-the-shoulder back-and-forth face-to-faces; every viewpoint and movement has purpose and shapeliness. Few thrillers have anything like so much visual texture — and it’s one of the reasons the film surprises and shocks you before it’s done.’  Evening Standard
