An acclaimed photographer with the eye of a filmmaker, Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. His meticulously composed, large-scale images are stunning narratives of small-town American life-moviescapes crystallized into a single frame. Shot over a decade with unprecedented access, this film beautifully bares the artist's process and it's as mesmerizing and riveting as the images themselves

I enjoyed this well-made glimpse into the photographer's process, which he employs to stage elaborate, large-format photographs. Fans of this movie may also enjoy documentaries about painter Kehinde Wiley and photographer Vivian Maier.

Um, he's just taking a picture eh. He goes a tad overboard in setting them up.

Gregory Crewdson's work is unbelievably haunting and fascinating. Although his photographs are staged with crews that competes with film productions, he does take from his own dreams and fantasies. Incredible work!
