Shallow Grave (1994) was my introduction to Danny Boyle, yes before Trainspotting (1996), and his talent has endured over twenty years in the industry as it shines across a plethora of excellent, interesting films, well, almost everything he’s done – we’re looking at you A Life Less Ordinary (1997).
Just before I share a really impressive cinematography supercut of Boyle’s films, by Art of the Film, the things that have continued to excite me, in his 23 years of directing features, are undoubtedly the unique angles created by inventive camera work. This video celebrates those elements and it’s something that inspires me in my own photography and I’m sure countless other film and photography lovers.
Coming up are moments from Shallow Grave, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later, Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire (my least favourite because it all felt a bit predictable), 127 Hours, the underrated Trance, and the iconic Steve Jobs.
