I guess it's no so much that you're getting a "clearer" image like with DCP, but the fact that the film is twice the size means it doesn't have to be blown up as much to fit the screen. So, you're kind of getting a denser image, if that makes any sense.

I have seen a 70mm print of IV. My sight isn't the best there is but it looked like regular 35mm. I don't see the point of making those.

Odd that there doesn't seem to be any 35mm showings anywhere. Also, it looks like those of us who don't live in NY or LA have to wait until at least January 12th to see it. Hopefully they will do some general advance screenings before the expansion like they did for Inherent Vice.

As if it isn't bad enough we have to wait till the 19th, we also have to settle for DCP projection while NY/LA flaunts 70MM prints.

the coens don't deal with tragedy as steep as what's in this flick, so maybe it was McDormand's presence in a dark comedy that gave off those vibes. for whatever influence they did have (I guess I can see some in the way the script could poke fun at more simpleminded folk), it was all positive and worked for the story. i may have been too impacted by the emotional waves to feel slighted by some of the character stereotypes, because nothing about the flick felt manipulative when it could have easily gone in those directions. I'd chalk that up to the director. also thought the film spoke volumes about emotions like anger and grief, and didn't make anything easy for characters or audiences. after the high of watching it withered i was able to point a few flaws, but this is one of those films whose flaws I'd easily forgive due to the sheer power it possesses. some of the complaints i've read on places like twitter seemed valid, but i was too swept away during the experience to notice.

also, what hot button issue does it shoehorn? rape and murder? racism?

Really bummed this doesn't go wide until January 19th.  At first I was wanting to see this on Christmas, but the realized that's only a limited release.  Ugh.

Not to mention, just a warning: it's probably best not to go into anything related to PTA anywhere on the Internet.  Even seemingly innocuous stuff.  I had one little thing about the film spoiled that I'd rather not know, and I'm still really finding it hard to stay away, out of boredom and curiosity.

I didn't care all that much about Inherent Vice because it was adapted material, but it's a great feeling to be truly excited about a PTA film.  Sure, I was excited about CMBB, but that came with the assurances he was doing his own riff on Oil!.  But I digress.

New little preview:


Lovely shots! That score is amazing. Totally reminds me of Steve Reich. I watched Dunkirk today and, although the soundtrack has some good and appropriate elements, I was disappointed with the music on the whole. I thought, man, if only Jonny Greenwood had done the score for this film! Great work by Hoyt Van Hoytema, though.
