The English Patient
“As I’ve gone through life, I’ve found that your chances for happiness are increased if you wind up doing something that is a reflection of what you loved most when you were somewhere between nine and eleven years old.” ~ Walter Murch
In the wee hours of the morning, I decided to watch a beautiful love story entitled The English Patient.
The wonderful cinematography was created by my favorite cinematographer at the moment John Seale. The film also happens to be edited by favorite editor Walter Murch. Each of them were awarded an Academy Award in 1997 for this film and rightfully so in my opinion.
This eloquent picture was the smoothest quench of holy cinematography I’ve seen in quite some time. The edits were like fine stitches in a fine royal cape. My heart was given an extra dose of love when I watched the aviation cinematography. I have such a love for flight and aviation, and let’s just say the opening sequence for this film left me quite smitten. I highly recommend watching this film. Some of my favorite stills are included above, but that’s the bare minimum of what visual treasures this picture holds.
