Dark Knight Rises cinematographer calls Avengers an ‘appalling film’

The cinematographer of Dark Knight Rises, long-time Chris Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister was at a Q&A session at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida.  During the session, he said, "What’s really important is storytelling. None of it matters if it doesn’t support the story.   I thought 'The Avengers' was an appalling film. They’d shoot from some odd angle and I'd think, why is the camera there? Oh, I see, because they spent half a million on the set and they have to show it off. It took me completely out of the movie. I was driven bonkers by that illogical form of storytelling."

 
Seamus McGarvey, who’s been nominated for cinematography work, had recently spoken up about making the Avengers, saying, “"It feels totally liberating.  I've always shot on celluloid and film, on big cameras. This we shot on an Arri Alexa camera, and it was liberating in the sense that you could use different formats. [...] There was just no law to it, really; you can do just whatever you like. I think digital cinema has come to a new ... not plateau, but a new phase of excellence, which allows us to fuse different media."
 
Dark Knight Rises versus Avengers arguments always end up descending into DC versus Marvel arguments eventually, so we won’t get started on that.  However, both Pfister and McGarvey are well known cinematographers in their own right, just as Chris Nolan and Joss Whedon are world-famous directors at this point.  Both films had their own set of strengths and weaknesses, but cinematography was definitely a high point in both films for fans.
