Spending the day in the company of netflix and watching old/classic films. First on the list was Paper Moon.
“During the Great Depression, a con man finds himself saddled with a young girl who may or may not be his daughter, and the two forge an unlikely partnership.”
The cinematographer, Laszlo Kavocs, did an exceptional job at capturing a nostalgic feel to the film by using similar camera techniques used in traditional American cinema in the 40’s. Techniques including deep focus and wide angles were used continuously throughout and closely resembles films such as The Grapes of Wrath and Citizen Kane (So good). Also, the acting alone is outstanding and almost right off the bat you’re convinced the two are truly father and daughter. The chemistry between them is unlike anything I’ve seen before.
It’s quite the charming movie and I highly suggest it.
