Not so super 8
10 December 2018 | by davoSee all my reviews

This film had some interesting things to say, with some interesting people saying them. However, the cinematography is dominated by the Super 8 format the director decided to employ, perhaps for philosophical or maybe economical reasons, and it does NOT serve the subject well. The Super 8 segments all had what appears to a brown drip at the top center right of every frame, and the image fidelity is generally of a lower quality than the conventional segments. Plus, the film cartridges provide (at best) 2 and a half minutes of footage each, so there are black screen gaps in the film while the cartridges are replaced. Again, there may be some reason for using obsolete technology, But I don't get it or appreciate it.
