i often notice in some films what i call a "glossy look", a very diffused image. think for istance about "big fish", opposed to "the recruit". the first has got this shiny and glossy halo effect and the second one is very crisp and neat, almost in your face. is that "glossy look" achieved with a particular filter or is the film stock itself? if it is the stock which one would it be? and to get a VERY crisp but not grainy look which one would be used?
i know i keep asking these things but i am trying hard to learn the secrets of film stocks, and this forum helps
