Glowing review of Paul Nordin’s cinematography work on feature film “Us”

30 May

“Interesting is Paul Nordin’s cinematography. On the one hand, dark and gritty but with a digital polish and crisp sharpness. The dichotomy between the clean visual texture and the subject matter creates a palpable uncomfortableness that allows for the emotional tapestry to come to the forefront. Similarly, the contrast in lighting after Margaret has had a particularly dark episode to then come out into the world the next day to harsh, overlit brightness, shocks the senses, making US a full sensory experience.”
