“So how does “You’ve got to see that on the big screen” apply to independent movies? That’s a more complicated and troubling question, but one with an easier answer: It doesn’t. Though many theaters have used innovative programming, special events, artisanal popcorn, and booze to draw people in, the only significant change independent theaters have made in terms of presentation is spending tens of thousands of dollars to convert from 35mm to digital. And the grim irony of that conversion is that it’s brought the moviegoing experience more in line with the home-viewing experience—what Quentin Tarantino, a passionate digital holdout, called “TV in public.” If what you’re getting on your TV, phone, and computer is digital, then there’s nothing all that special about going to a digital theater, no matter whether a given person can distinguish between digital projection and projected film. Quibbles over resolution aside, if the delivery system is more or less the same, the urgency to see independent and foreign films in a theater is bound to dissipate.”

As the home-viewing experience gets better and better, the argument for seeing a movie on the big screen becomes harder to make. It’s a problem that affects movies both big and small, but especially small. Scott Tobias explores the state of “You’ve got to see that on the big screen.” [Read more…]

Mr. Nobody

Quote 25 Mar 169 notes
Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty — a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, without appeal to any part of our weaker nature, without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, the sense of being more than Man, which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, is to be found in mathematics as surely as poetry.
— Bertrand Russell (via youmightfindyourself)
