Reminds me of their Christmas Eve conversation where Tarantino sez for this same reason he had Paul watch H8ful Eight on a typical edit bay monitor.

There should be a drinking game for every time Tarantino awkwardly taps PTAís knee.


And then Anderson looks at him like stop touching me

Iím sure Iím preaching to the choir here but it seems strange to me why the editor of a film magazine wouldnít understand why Nolan is so committed to a theatrical experience. The massive scope and image size is built into Nolanís art in a way that it isnít for most other films, including Boogie Nights. I mean, a good movie thatís been cropped to 1.33 for television is still a good movie, but itís still not the intended way youíre supposed to be seeing it.

I haven't encountered this quote before.  Agreed.

I'm pretty sure this is from the Hollywood Conversations pizza interview he did with Mike Figgis.

Movies arenít cropped for TV anymore for the most part. However, I think thereís a healthy space in between the two extremes. I do think the theatrical
experience is special and we should continue to put resources in it. However, the film does live on through home viewings and what PTA said about watching it on a shitty print is true. I am a big champion of the cinematic experience in theaters, but a global pandemic is not the right time to be pushing that.
Read the room Chris.

PTA and Nolan are going for notably different things when making movies. Dunkirk is a one-of-a-kind brilliant moviegoing experience if you see it in theaters. If youíre at home, unless you have a dark private mini theater setup, itís simply not the same. Heís after epic-scale visual experiences, and has done enough good for cinema (and brought us enough joy) that we should be supporting his theater insistence. I will be seeing TENET in theaters, and today, will happily be watching PDL on my couch.

That's a fun duo. I'd love to see Gallo in an Anderson movie...

Thanks, e...came here to post the same item.  Did you notice it's a couple of minutes shy of FIVE HOURS?

Cool.

[edit]  I'd forgotten that these are the "New Beverly Boys".  Just listened to the first 48 minutes--which is just Hard Eight.

Definitely. NO SPOILERS but there may be something around 2 1/2 hours dropping tomorrow that focuses on about 2 1/2 minutes of his filmography.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I'm putting my money on an extended analysis of "Clementine's Loop".

I guess this will do until we learn what modage was teasing.
