Cinematographer Roger Deakins gets technical with the Film Book Blog about his work on Denis Villeneuve's Sicario, discussing his lighting setups and his general no-frills approach to filming.

"A lot of the time I don’t like to fuss — on set or in the DI – because you can overthink things," he says. "You can play with the image and toy with it, and it becomes too overworked.
