Freddie Francis 1917-2007

A sad farewell to cinematographer Freddie Francis, who passed away this past Sunday. Francis' was the director of photography on such films as The Straight Story, Scorsese's Cape Fear, Dune, and The French Lieutenant's Woman. Fans of Hammer and Amicus Studios also know him as the director of several British horror classics, including The Creeping Flesh, Dracula Has Risen from the Grave and Dr. Terror's House of Horrors. Francis won two academy awards for his work as the DP of Glory and Sons and Lovers, although my personal favorite work of his will always be The Elephant Man, one of the most gorgeously shot motion pictures of all time. A true cinematic working man who embodied the very best kind of craftsman as artist, he will be fondly remembered.

One of my favorite shots in a Lynch movie is the introduction of Treves in The Elephant Man, when he's looking towards but not quite into the camera - there's something about it that just captures me. That shot in Cape Fear of Max Cady leaving prison, walking towards and almost through the camera, is stunning too.

Man, that movie makes me cry almost as much as Ikiru.
