Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Cinematographer Phil Meheux's film career spans 40 years and ranges from gritty, naturalistic works to slick, big budget movies. His early work on the groundbreaking BBC anthology show "Play for Today" garnered him a BAFTA nomination for the episode "Spend, Spend, Spend," which was based on the true story of Viv Nicholson, a working class British woman who won £152,300 in a betting pool, subsequently losing her fortune. In 1979, he filmed the hard-hitting prison drama "Scum," which became actor Ray Winstone's breakout role, and a year later, he worked on the seminal British gangster movie "The Long Good Friday," starring Bob Hoskins. His work on many Hollywood productions is far removed from the coarse world of gangsters and prisons, instead focusing on horror and sci-fi productions such as "Omen III: The Final Conflict," "Max Headroom," "Highlander II: The Quickening," and "No Escape." With the 1988 thriller "Criminal Law," Meheux began a long collaboration with director Martin Campbell, filming such high-profile films as the swashbuckling "The Mask of Zorro," the resurrected Bond film "Casino Royale," and the tough-as-nails conspiracy thriller "Edge of Darkness."
