'Gravity' Cinematographer Reveals How He Got Those Astonishing Shots

Inside Llewyn Davis

Bruno Delbonnel

The Coen brothers' movie opens with the title character (Oscar Isaac) performing at a folk music club in Greenwich Village in 1961. "We wanted to have this almost black-and-white image, which could be the two sides of Llewyn Davis himself -- one side is lit, the other is dark," says Delbonnel, who photographed the movie on film. "His two personalities was something I was looking for. It added to the atmosphere of the scene, being in a folk music club, with smoke. Llewyn Davis is black and white; he's a very strange person."
