    Movie Quote of the Day: ICE AGE.

  • On Deakins: I think that he is not switching permanently, he just thought for the film he was working on, an action film, that the digital would produce images more conducive to the film. He said he will use it again on the Mendes-Bond film, but he does not seem to indicate that he will be using digital on future Coen bros. collaborations or other projects where digital might be less stylistically appropriate. Also, the Picasso comparison is a tad hyperbole.

    I do, however, agree that this is surprising. And interesting.
