Breaking Bad as Cinamatic Art

I’ve been into a Breaking Bad marathon for the last two weeks.  I’m not ready to knock my absolute favorite, The Wire off its pedestal and its number one spot yet.  However, this show is drama and artistry well written, designed and filmed.  The cinematography works with the open landscape and purity, of the puffy, white clouds in the vast bright blue sky of New Mexico, but manages to keep one focused on the drama by using a subtle device.  The use of light and slightly dark, sienna shading that shifts in intensity creates unique moods that underscore the underlying tensions within scenes and characters..  Very well done.
