Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)
This week’s question: In dubious honor of “Fifty Shades Darker,” what is the most ridiculous sex scene from a movie?

Cameraperson review: The critically acclaimed documentary arrives on UK soil following an impressive debut at Sundance 2016.
Read our Cameraperson review below.
You may not know the name Kirsten Johnson, but you may very well have engaged with her work without realising. Johnson has been a cinematographer on many outstanding documentaries of recent years including Citizenfour and This Film is Not Yet Rated. She has demonstrated an incredibly keen eye over her years as a cinematographer, seemingly as awed by her subjects as we the viewer are. Her vast body of work is what makes up the crux of her latest feature Cameraperson. Here she has constructed visual memoir comprised of outtakes and snippets of unused footage from across the films of her career. It is a documentary that proves to be as profound and as stimulating as any of her esteemed career highlights.
