Hit me with your best shot is back with a film that is known for its unique cinematography - "Dick Tracy". Indeed, this adaptation of the 1930s comic strip is all surface-level style, but what style! I struggled to connect with the film's broad caricatures, but I definitely appreciated the comic book aesthetic when it came to the bright color palette.
Despite its eye-catching cinematography however, the film is curiously devoid of "money shots", making this Best Shot exercise a bit more challenging than I anticipated. In the end, I found myself gravitating towards the long shots, which allow you to take in all of the wonderful art direction. My favourite shot isn't the most colorful, but I loved the film noir feel of the scene. We get the femme fatale, the trench coat and fedora-wearing detective, the secluded moonlit surroundings and the seedy city for a backdrop. You just know they're involved in some risky business.
