The Cinematography of Conan the Barbarian (1982)

I really didn't feel like writing a review of Conan the Barbarian. I've read academic criticisms regarding the film's stance on fascism and totalitarianism and so forth … but really, the movie to me is just about big muscly dudes punching camels in the face. I really have nothing to add of substance to be brutally honest with myself. But the film is beautiful to look at … and epic … so here is a look at the wonderful camera work.
