Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Carol (2015)

Carol: Just when you think it can't get any worse, 
you run out of cigarettes. 

It is the 69th birthday of the exceptional cinematographer Ed Lachman today, who not only shot Carol but also Far From Heaven and The Limey and Desperately Seeking Susan and Less Than Zero and Life During Wartime and Wiener-dog and the Mildred Pierce mini-series and did I say Far From Heaven yes Far From Heaven twice because Far From Heaven.

And many others. Our eyeballs owe him such a profound gratitude. He's got a few things lined up but of course it's his re-teaming with Todd Haynes we care most about - he shot Wonderstruck, Haynes' upcoming film with Julianne Moore and Michelle Williams, which will be out this year. GIVE IT TO ME.
