True Grit is a movie that I always have been fascinated by due to its amazing cinematography by Roger Deakins. The lighting, especially in the night scenes, gives a very dramatic feel to the movie. The main light sources at night is that of lamps once again. The warm glows it gives are used by Deakins to emphasis the vast landscape in which the movie is set.

I really like the blue tones in this piece on the character and how they stand out against his face, illuminating his expression.
