While we at FTN are still giddy every time we get a glimpse of Joss Whedon’s Avengers, it seems it’s not as universally loved as we thought…
Cinematographer extraordinaire Wally Pfister has launched a blistering attack on Avengers Assemble. Joss Whedon’s film smashed all kinds of records this summer but it hasn’t won the seal of approval of Christopher Nolan’s regular collaborator.
The man who lensed Nolan’s Batman trilogy said: “I thought The Avengers was an appalling film. They’d shoot from some odd angle and I’d think, why is the camera there? Oh, I see, because they spent half a million on the set and they have to show it off. It took me completely out of the movie. I was driven bonkers by that illogical form of storytelling.”
