Ang Lee - Bringing The Hyper-Realism
Ang Lee shot his latest at the “revolutionary” rate of 120 frames per second. Early reviews have been divided but all agree it looks realer than real. Whether anyone gets to see this effect – as most cinemas aren’t equipped to project at this rate – remains to be seen as to how much of a game changer the whole thing turns out to be.
Maybe, we’ll just have to make do with the story, the direction, the performances…you know, the old fashioned way.
