Perfect Direction by Noah Baumbach

Baumbach’s piece of direction is entirely restrained, but there have been some of the stylistic flourishes that made the whole world a difference into. The cinematography has been done by Robbie Ryan’s in which he has entirely shot the characters of the film by showing out their feelings and emotions.

If at one shot he has correctly represented Charlie and Nicole to be in deep love with one another, then on the other shot, he has beautifully represented the both to be fierce enemies of one another with anger expression on their face. This is a real sign of a professional cinematographer.
