#2017viewings #SPOOKTOBER edition - The Addams Family
Really just one of the most delightful movies I've ever seen, rich with visual humor, rousing performances, beautiful, tactile design, and wild, energetic cinematography. I would expect no less from Sonnenfeld, at such a masterful phase of his career as a DP that it feels like he could have crafted anything in front of a camera to outright perfection, and that he adjusts as well to the design and choreography of such dazzling comic setpieces--ones easily on the level with his great collaborators the Coens--is no small feat, yet no surprise. Glad to have such an old oversight finally corrected.
