A video essay on camera technique and alienation in Mad Men

This subtle and clever video essay by Jefferson Robbins focuses on the cinematographer's camera techniques and how they established the visual grammar of Mad Men. Robbins also makes a couple of intertextual references to Alfred Hitchcock's 1946 film Notorious as he establishes the director's influence over the second season's cinematographer, Christopher Manley.
