Somebody explain to me how you can watch Pan’s Labyrinth and Children of Men and think that Pan’s Labyrinth is the better work of cinematography?
Pan’s Labyrinth was filmed with skill and imagination.
Children of Men was one of those films that sets the standard even higher. They did things with the camera in that film that defy belief.
Time will be a better judge than the Academy in all of these categories, but we don’t have to wait for an envelope on this one.
