Just saw it last night and I was wondering, was it an optical blow up or DI? I really liked the film and the look of it. Super 16, yeah!
Hi. I watched TSATW last night and felt exactly the same way. Really crisp, colorful images...
According the imdb, the movie was shot in 16mm, although I think they probably mean Super 16:

It was covered in both the Nov. 2005 issue of "American Cinematographer" and the Oct. 2005 issue of "ICG Magazine"
According to these articles it was an optical blow-up at DuArt. It was indeed shot on Super16mm not 16mm (7218,7246) with an Arri SR and mostly on a Zeiss Super-speed 16mm prime. Yeoman refers to the 16 as their "workhorse", also sometimes using the 12mm and the 24mm. Good movie.
