Today we visit the cinematography of Rodrigo Prieto. In the 2009 Pedro Almodovar film Broken Embraces; the audience is mesmerised and flawed by Prieto’s fascinating imagery. His camera work and visual motivations, I believe, make it the most influential and admired film that I have ever seen. A major compulsion for Prieto is that of portraiture in the moving image: Broken Embraces contains endless character inquisitions using this method (portraiture in film). It is thus imperative to note Prieto’s previous work on Spike Lee’s 2002 film 25th Hour –a film I also count as highly regarded. The visual stylisation of this film is epitomised by locked–down video shots and ultra colour saturation (or over exposure). Prieto pioneered this aesthetic to an extent; in his portraiture of the characters surrounding Edward Norton (as Monty Brogan; our protagonist in the film). Prieto also shot the 2002, politically–charged Frida, and also the series of Alejandro González Iñárritu films –comprising the 2010 Biuitiful, 2006’s Babel, 2003’s 21 Grams and 2000’s Amores Perros. Amores Perros is also a film whose visual style has profoundly informed my visual dynamic or perspective of the moving image.
