There's something quietly off-kilter and, well, a little sad in Kristen Wiig's comedy. In Bridesmaids, her Annie lost the passion for life, even if she was having sex with a comically self-obsessed lout played by Jon Hamm. In The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, she was the object of the title character's daydreams - a co-worker whom Mitty (Ben Stiller) imagined to be full of dazzle and daring, but who, in reality, lived with her pooch, not much going on.
Cinematographer Wally Pfister has a resumé rife with hits - Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises. He won an Oscar in 2011, for his sixth collaboration with Christopher Nolan, the mind-bending, gravity-defying Inception. Pfister shot Lisa Cholodenko's smart, smart-looking Laurel Canyon. He shot Moneyball.
