Haskell Wexler: “He was the first cinematographer in over 35 years to receive a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame." Haskell Wexler, who has died today at the age of 93, was considered one of the industry’s most important and influential cinematographers.

Cinematographer, director and producer Haskell Wexler has passed away, aged 93. He may be "best remembered by cineastes of the baby boomer generation as the director of an innovative narrative film, Medium Cool (1969), which seamlessly melded documentary footage of the 1968 protests at the Democratic National Convention in Chicago with the lives of fictional characters," notes Maria Garcia in Film Journal International.

He was also nominated for shooting Milos Forman’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, John Sayles’s Matewan and Ron Shelton’s Huey Long biopic Blaze. We're collecting remembrances. » - David Hudson »
