A very important and informative Documentary on the issue of Digital Video - 8.5/10
This is a documentary that I really don't see your average cinema goer enjoying but I could be wrong. I am a bit of a movie buff and I found it fascinating because not only did I learn more about the medium of film but to see the opinions of big names like the Wachowski's, Lynch, Lucas etc. is interesting. I hadn't realised the impact digital was having, both good and bad, on the industry but if my job were threatened, perceived or otherwise, I wouldn't be too happy. It's great to see the films that really set the standards and also the hows and whys certain films were made, for example because digital is so cheap there are a lot more but also this is seen as diluting the industry making it awash with decidedly crap movies. I must admit that recently the amount of 'straight to video' horrors has increased but the quality has decreased, drastically so there is truth to this. Personally I like digital as a viewer and I think it will end up nearly all digital with some exceptions.
An absolute must for anyone with an interest in film and to get some insight on which way the wind is blowing in the digital debate.
