Cinematography in Mad Men

by Critical Commons Manager

Jefferson Robbins' Retro: The Camera and Mad Men offers a highly polished example of the potentials of the video essay to perform analysis that requires the use of original source material for the argument to be legible. The juxtaposition of clips from the AMC television series and Hitchcock, for example, clearly illustrate for viewers the point being made about the carefully controlled cinematography of the show.
