More on film v digital

I've written a few times on CineRobot about the troubling era we are living in regarding the future of film. Here's a link to a debate between the two chief film critics [will that have to change when there is no more film? What will we call people who review cinema related material? Movie critic just doesn't have the same ring to it as film critic.] of the New York Times, A.O. Scott and Manohla Dargis regarding the issue. I have to say, which is no surprise to regular readers, I side with Dargis on the issue. Go here to read their exchange.

The best thing about the article is that I learned that Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master was filmed in 70mm. Now, that's how to make a movie. Screw all this hand-held, edited on a laptop movie making!
