Keanu Reeves produces, narrates and acts as on-camera interview in Chris Kenneally's fascinating new documentary about Hollywood's transition into the digital age. Years on the acting A-list has primed the one-time Neo well for Side by Side; he's able to call on the cream of the movie industry's directors, cinematographers, producers and camera producers to document the move from celluloid to digital.
Side by Side assembles a cast of talking heads - including digital evangelists George Lucas, James Cameron and David Fincher, and those reluctant to convert such as Christopher Nolan and his director of photography Wally Pfister - to deconstruct the entire technical process, workflow and history of the business.
The documentary examines everything from image capture, editing, delivery, »
