His active career spanning from the glory days of the New German Cinema to the dawn of the digital cinematography era, the versatile, brilliant Dutch cinematographer Robby Müller showed himself capable of doing just about anything with a camera—anything, that is, but produce an indifferent image. This program displays the full range of a prodigious, painterly talent whose genius for delineating character and enchanting landscape remained constants through his long collaboration with Wim Wenders, his American outings with Peter Bogdanovich, William Friedkin, Alex Cox, and Jim Jarmusch, and his late experiments in expressionistic digital smear with Lars von Trier and Michael Winterbottom. “One of the most exciting and innovative cinematographers on the planet.”—Sight and Sound
