This week is not about a movie but one of the best Tv series in my opinion.
The visual for this 4th season are amazing and even more complex then before, with a more intense use of overexposure then the previous ones. The photography is marvelous, high contrast very dramatic with excellent camera work and very interesting framing.
I have to admit that the story line for me was a little too strained. It feel as they want to add at all cost more drama and more family secret. Even so I enjoyed it very much and when I finished to watch it I want to see more.
The first season is still my favorite from all point of view. The story line is, pass me the expretion, more down to hearth. And I found the cinematography very appealing and interesting: the complicate light scheme where the light is always fell natural but at the same time add drama and narrative to the story. But what really stroke me is the framing goes so well with the story that you barely notice that more often then not the end of the frame is right in front of their nose, they are in trap.
The use to shot the character reflection in mirrors and windows.
Dirty shot instead of clean one, a lot of times there is something between the subject of the frame and the camera.
All this element are the visual style for Sherlock and they return in all the seasons.
The question now is there is going to be a season 5? I honestly hope so, but for now let’s enjoying this 4 awesome seasons. I always discover more hid details every time I watch them again.
