Gordon Willis, the cinematographer who worked with directors such as Francis Ford Coppola, Woody Allen and Alan J. Pakula to create distinctive looks for films that include The Godfather and The Godfather, Part II, Annie Hall and Manhattan, and All The President's Men and The Parallax View, has passed away at age 82.
KC's View:
For some of us, seeing Gordon Willis's name in the credits was all by itself a signal that what we were about to watch was something that was going to look incredibly unique. And the directors who hired Willis knew that he was the kind of cinematographer who would give these projects a differential advantage.
