Acclaimed photographer Gregory Crewdson is the subject of this fascinating documentary from Ben Shapiro entitled ‘Brief Encounters‘. His instantly recognisable style (remember those incredible Six Feet Under promo shots?) relies on capturing a single moment to create something either wildly dramatic or quietly sinister, reminiscent of David Lynch’s ‘weird surburbia’ work. Following him through 2005-2009 as he creates his now legendary Beneath the Roses series, the film reveals his obsessive attention to detail and offers a look behind the scenes at his large scale shoots. Showing across the U.S in the next couple of months, find your local viewing here.
