Hey Roger-

Always loved this shot. Curious about the lens here, has a wideness to it but the background guys also feel closer than a 27. 

Any memory of what you were on here?

That was probably a 35mm and we were shooting Super 35mm spherical. The film was almost exclusively shot hand held and on either a 40mm, 35, or 32mnm. I seem to remember only using a 27mm for a scene in which Jake is suffering a nightmare.

Beautiful. Such an underrated film.
