No “Dark Knight” 3D – Salon.com: “Nolan is not a fan of digital 3-D, which essentially has turned a fleeting 1950s cinema gimmick into a multi-million-dollar value-added tax on fans who decide they want to put on the glasses and see a film with the illusion of depth.”
Thank you, Mr. Nolan. At least someone out there understands that 3D is a sham and has the guts to follow his convictions.
I love his later quote from this same article: “I never meet anybody who actually likes the format, and it’s always a source of great concern to me when you’re charging a higher price for something that nobody seems to really say they have any great love for.”
Meanwhile IMAX, which actually does provide a superior experience, is worth the extra couple of bucks. Provided you actually shoot with an iMAX camera, as is done in these films.
Is it a coincidence that Nolan’s Batman films are often considered the best in the genre?
