Personal Quote:

[on Son of Saul (2015)] We were deciding between widescreen and the narrow academy aspect ratio [1.37:1]. In the end we found that widescreen - although it would have looked very nice - would have been too... cinematic, it would have made a spectacle out of the background, made the background so stylistically important that we would lose the portrait-like focus we wanted for the film.
