A quote from Mindel's IMDB profile:
"I think the film medium is irreplaceable. The rendition of film is so good and the quality is so high, especially when you use large format. That is something we won't be able to do with HD for years. I was watching Vertigo yesterday, which was a VistaVision movie. My god, the quality! You could project that on the wide of the Queen Mary and it's going to look good
It would be interesting to see how many directors and cinematographers feel such a strong affinity towards film.
