|"Josie's secret weapon is cinematographer Matthew
For a Dream), who favors the kind of hyperactive color schemes
generally associated with fashion layouts in hip magazines. This guy has a
real eye for the medium, and his often grainy shooting style lends the
film a sexy DIY look that complements the tunes perfectly. He also makes
the girls look terrific, if vaguely otherworldly, like they've just
stepped out of a Bebe poster. (The short-cropped Cook in particular is
given a delicious sheen.)"

cinematographer Matthew Libatique, who
previously served on Requiem for a Dream, lends a grunge gleam to the
ad-saturated sets; a sing-along in a hair salon looks like an outtake from
"..hot whites and smooth close-ups are pure Libatique..."
