Director James Mangold brings us Ford v Ferrari, a 2019 movie starring Christian Bale and Matt Damon. In this mini video essay, I focus on the cinematography and filmmaking philosophy of Mangold and cinematographer Phedon Papamichael. I specifically look at the “perfect lap” clip from the film, as well as Ford v Ferrari’s general racing scenes.

Ford v Ferrari is a film based on the true story of the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari at the 1966 Le Mans 24 hour endurance race. The movie stars Christian Bale and Matt Damon playing driver Ken miles and car maker Carroll Shelby.

Ford v Ferrari is a 20th Century Fox movie produced by Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, and James Mangold

Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon
