NOLAN

Great interview with Christopher Nolan covering a range of subjects. Well, mostly Batman and film formats actually, but interesting nonetheless!

I always assumed digital formats would live happily beside 35mm but this does not seem to be the case, digital acquisition (RED/ALEXA etc) is seemingly eradicating it. Soon 35mm aquisition and projection will be a cult curio for second run cinemas and directors with enough clout to demand it.

Which is a shame as it still ‘looks’ like cinema to me, obviously as I grew up with it, but it also has an entirely separate aesthetic that is utterly distinct from anything else.

I’ll save shouting about 3d vs IMAX, HFR and whatnot for a seperate post. There will be swearing. Lots and lots of swearing.
