Manohla Dargis and A.O. Scott compare notes on what is changing in motion pictures because of the so-called digital revolution. What I particularly like about this article is the two critics' attempt to think about how the steep learning curve of digital is a problem that most film productions are not succeeding in overcoming. Is this a fault of production companies or are directors of photography and their directors too easy dazzled by the new? And are critics like Scott and Dargis, raised on Film Forum and cinephile films on celluloic just too nostalgic?
The image is from Ken Jacobs, Nervous Magic Lantern Performance, referenced at the end of the article. Here's a link to a review of a recent book about his wonderful work: http://idiommag.com/2011/10/optic-antics-the-cinema-of-ken-jacobs/
