Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Working Girl(1988)
Director: Mike Nichols
Cinematography: Michael Ballhaus

I wasn't fair toWorking Girlin 1988.When it won the reader poll easily for coverage here on Best Shot,the old grudge flared up again.'Why do people love this movie so much?' I thought.You see the Oscar race is often distorting.In 1988Working Girlwas a last minute disrupter with its Christmas bow,and I never forgave it for costingBull Durham,Running on Empty,orWho Framed Roger Rabbitmajor nominations and prizes.There's no proof of course that it did -- but I believed it wholeheartedly.

But watching the film again,away from that distorting horse race,I could enjoy it fully without name-checking those films I held more dear.There's so much to enjoy all told."It plays,"as they say.It plays beautifully.Now don't get me wrong.I still wouldn't have nominated it for six Oscars.亚博主页Six!But let's not return to the grudge and let's enjoy this mainstream bullseye and the cinematography by Michael Ballhaus,one of the cinema's greatest DPs.He's 80 now and still doesn't have an Oscar.He should be near the very top of Oscar's list for an Honorary.
