Acclaimed photographer Gregory Crewdson has created some of the most gorgeously haunting pictures in the history of the medium. Inspired by a range of influences including David Lynch, Alfred Hitchcock, Diane Arbus, and Edward Hopper, Crewdson creates meticulously composed images that offer eerily imagined narratives of small-town American life. Produced over a decade with unprecedented access to the artist, Brief Encounters is a compelling look at both Crewdson’s process and his riveting images. (77 mins., HDCAM)
