Auteur Watch - Bob Delegall
Bob Delegall has a French name, meaning "of the Gall."... something like that. Sadly, he shook off this mortal coil some ten years ago, but his body of work shines on! Just look at that IMDb Top 4 of his. Pizza Man. The Presidio. ......Secret Games 3? Hmmm.... Well, one out of three ain't bad (Pizza Man). Of course, regular readers of this web log will know that I have a certain fascination with Secret Games 3. I'll take the IMDb's word that it's some of Delegall's best work, and probably some of the best work of Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister. Well, on a film like that, they take, like, way more time to make sure the lighting's right. Now it's all autofocus and what not; just let the camera do the heavy lifting, who cares.
