On location with director Todd Haynes (seated L) and director of photography Ed Lachman (R). Says Lachman: Todd’s idea for ‘Mildred Pierce’ was to view the 1930s through a ‘70s revisionist style of filmmaking referencing movies like ‘Chinatown’ and ‘Klute,’ with a more pared-down, natural look to the lighting. We didn’t want to have the stylized studio look of classic ‘30s and ‘40s noir lighting and camera work.
