Very cool IndieWire article takes a deep dive into the creative use of color for the new drama, ‘Widows.’ Director Steve McQueen, cinematographer Sean Bobbitt and colorist Tom Poole weigh in (with visual examples) on how they approached the look of this powerful film, which stars Viola Davis and Michelle Rodriguez.

McQueen describes his thinking about color, explaining he’s not interested in something that’s merely decorative. “We’re interested in getting something much more textural, that you can actually feel it in your hands….unfortunately, we don’t have smell, but we do have color grading, which is very important.”
