On Sunday, the movie world felt a great loss as famed cinematographer Gordon Willis passed away at age 82. Willis was arguably the best cameraman there ever was and he was incredibly influential in the age of New Hollywood back in the 1970s, working on pictures such as Annie Hall, All The President’s Men, and Manhattan. But Willis’ greatest accomplishment was collaborating alongside Francis Ford Coppola for The Godfather trilogy. With his use of dark lighting and hues, Willis established the foreboding mood that became fundamental to the core story of The Godfather. May he rest in peace.
