BHC in a 4K DCP. the Aero just played The Shining in 4K DCP during its 70mm series, too. QT is keeping up the fight for film but DCP is pervading other film-centric places that once pushed against DCP

just an observation. the Aero, not even so long ago, would never have chosen DCP, and for that matter i donít think PTA would have either. its ascent has been slowed but its future domination is showing signs of inevitability

You're not wrong, but I wonder if there were mitigating factors for this decision.  Maybe there were no decent prints avail, maybe Brest is proud of the 4K (restoration?).

there are definitely mitigating factors, plural, but I know one big one is simply that studios aren't striking prints like they used to. a lot of theaters are only digital projectors now, so there are fewer places to send the print to. and not only that but studios themselves are rather adverse to the idea of prints, embrace the digital format. in other words, absolutely there wasn't a decent print available. I recently saw Playtime at the Aero and it was genuinely sad how bad the print was

Anyone familiar enough to judge?   :ponder:  Released 1995...

This does check out.
La Haine is a banger of a movie, used to keep it on in the background during parties.

Not to take anything away from my dude, but if this scene, um, inspired RahadFest in Boogie in any way, then it can't help but slightly alter how impressed I am with that scene.

Woah, I didn't realize La Haine was older! I thought the influence was the other way around, but I can see a young Paul being charmed by this for sure...

Very cool movie. Love the bathroom serb story. BAM in Brooklyn was screening it just earlier this week.
I think Sorrentino is constantly alluding to it as well, especially the cow.

I read an interview recently with someone (was it PTA? The safdies?) who said that La Haine used to be "the shit" when they went to film school. I liked it too, but haven't watched it in a while.

Watched it last night.  Especially impressed with the photography and performances.  Mouth fell open at the eerie similarity of the coked-out dude scene.

Yes, Boogie Nights is a very boring movie.

Based on the rest of that thread, Ben has issues. Praying I don't end up sitting next to him at a Soggy screening.
