This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we continue our look back at 2015 as we discussed the best shot films of 2015, which felt even more appropriate coming of the heels of our review of The Revenant, shot by the great Emmanuel Lubeski. Cinematography is of course a crucial piece to any film, but each year there are certain movies that stand out due to it’s camera work and how it immerses you into the experience.
