Cinematographer Tim Orr talks to Indiewire about his work on drama Joe, directed by his longtime collaborator David Gordon Green.

I think we set out to make – there’s a certain Western quality to Joe, but it’s not overt. I think visually, what I wanted to do was certainly I wanted it to be a naturalistic looking movie, but I wanted to stretch the boundaries of that…There are elements within the film I wanted to try to bring a certain amount of – to stretch the bounds of pure naturalism to something that was very much heightened.
