Cinematographers in space

Here’s a beautiful video tribute to the cinematography of space, with images culled from 35 Hollywood and indie films, edited by Max Shiskin. But where is the line between an iconic image and a cliché? Is every space image an homage to Kubrick & Unworth’s work in 2001? Even the film selections that are narratively unique (my favorite, Moon, is well-represented here) feature the orbiting satellite, the lone astronaut going through the hatch into the unknown, etc. I hope this means we’re due for a good indie space film that twists all of these and rethinks them. Maybe a documentary?
