Simon Wyndham of RedShark News wonders if it’s possible for cinematography to be so good that it’s distracting or, possibly, pretentious.

Why on earth would we want something to look any less good than it possibly could be? I can visualize the hairs on the necks of many DPs currently rising in response to me even putting that question forward!”
