Over the course of the last several years, the film industry has undergone a multitude of dramatic changes. From the way audiences access movies to the way filmmakers shoot them, the art and business of film is evolving at a shockingly swift rate. In this illuminating documentary, producer Keanu Reeves interviews many of the most innovative game-changers in the world of cinema to examine how the digital age has transformed the movies. James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, Christopher Nolan, and Andy and Lana Wachowski are just a few of the filmmakers who share their insights in this thoroughly engaging documentary about the future of film.
Packed with captivating interviews as well as footage from some of the groundbreaking films of recent years, director Christopher Kenneally has crafted a comprehensive look at the realities of making movies in the 21st century. Still, Kenneally’s film is much more than just a lesson on filmmaking. This is a passionate and joyful celebration of why we go to the movies, and why so many people dedicate their lives to making them. –William Goldberg
Never thought I'd say this but God bless Keanu Reeves (and Christopher Kenneally). The film is no great piece of cinema in itself but it the only examination on film of the turbulent transition that the film industry has been going through since the mid-nineties. A must for anyone keen to understand the ins and outs of the visual craft as the seasons change.
This is an exciting documentary about the history and future of film, about the rise of digital filmmaking and projection. We rarely get to see directors express their thoughts through any medium other than film and we rarely get any technical information regarding how films were and are made; this doc provides all of that and brings back the magic of film, urging us to appreciate it far more than we normally do now.
A good look at the digital revolution, the differences between film & digital, and the future of cinema. Surprisingly (and thankfully) doesn't take a side and though my feelings are with film I have to point out how infuriating Lucas and Cameron become as their egos go through the roof in their segments.
