Best movie shots, 2008

A review of 2008's best cinematographic moments: part one, part two.

This year the challenge was of a different sort. The field was curiously thin. It wasn't that the talent wasn't on display. God knows, a number of the greats were lining up behind the camera this year. But the images weren't as instantly iconic or as viscerally gripping as they were in 2007, which might have left me a bit disappointed on one hand. Then again, it just made searching for my favorites all the more involved and interesting, and I'm happy to offer my findings to you in this space, even if it meant doubling up.

This was one of my favorite "best of" lists from 2007 and I'm glad to see it return this year.

Update: Hmm, all the permalinks on that site appear to be broken. Maybe check back later?
