Among the many, many cinematographers lensing pictures in the movie industry, there are few whose names immediately evoke a singular, stylistic sensibility. One of those folks is Christohper Doyle. Rising to fame thanks to his collaborations with Wong Kar-Wai, the cinemtographer has mostly worked in foreign cinema with unique entries in American film thanks to M. Night Shyamalan's "Lady In The Water," and Gus Van Sant's "Psycho" remake and his lo-fi "Paranoid Park." Doyle is always a good raconteur and this short doc is worth a spin.

Among the many, many cinematographers lensing pictures in the movie industry, there are few whose names immediately evoke a singular, stylistic sensibility. One of those folks is Christohper Doyle. Rising to fame thanks to his collaborations with Wong Kar-Wai, the cinemtographer has mostly worked in foreign cinema with unique entries in American film thanks to M. Night Shyamalan's "Lady In The Water," and Gus Van Sant's "Psycho" remake and his lo-fi "Paranoid Park." Doyle is always a good raconteur and this short doc is worth a spin.

Created for BBC Two's "The Culture Show," and seemingly put together not long after the release of "2046" (and definitely before Doyle fell out with Kar-Wai), the segment visits the cinematographer in his Hong Kong home and he takes them around to the locations used for "In The Mood For Love" and "Chungking Express." He explains how he achieved certain shots, and what his methodology is behind the camera. All told, it's some interesting stuff.

Give it a spin below. And you'll likely next see Doyle's work in Sebastian Silva's thriller "Magic Magic" starring Michael Cera. [One Shot]
