Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel’ Spins With Vittorio Storaro Visuals

wonderwheel5Filmmaker Woody Allen is often praised for his witty dialogue and the A-list ensemble he manages to collaborate with in each of his features. Allen’s features, however, are also blessed with a beautiful visual sense. During what some may considered his creative peak, Allen extensively worked with cinematographer Gordon Willis (Annie Hall, Manhattan, Broadway Danny Rose). Allen’s work with Carlo Di Palma was also revered thanks to their work on Hannah and her Sisters, Bullets over Broadway,and the criminally underrated Shadows and Fog.

Allen’s latest director of photography choice is Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now, Reds), and Storaro’s painterly, golden light was evident in last year’s Cafe Society and now with Wonder Wheel.

Wonder Wheel, starring Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake, is now playing nationwide.
