Cinematographically speaking, could someone fill us in on the production details? It looked like Super 16, almost all handheld, run-and-gun documentary style footage. Comments?

I thought it was a fantastic movie. And it wasn't as much of a tearjerker as I had expected. There was very little emotional manipulation going on. You really felt like you knew the characters, without even knowing their names. I liked the documentary feel, although it was occasionally a little distracting.

It looked were grainy, which I liked, which is why I was surprised to see that Tim put up a news piece that it wa sshot on the Eterna 500T. In the AC article they say that it was shot on Fuji 8571, but that must be a mistake, that film isn't available anymore. So it might have been 8572 (the version prior to Eterna, which is 8573)
Not sure about the DI either, it kind of flattened the look.
I liked the way the film was handled, it felt very honest, a depiction of the events as they might have occured. In a way it is interesting to make a film about such a well-known event, because everyone knows what is happening, which means that this whole tension and anticipation is build into the material and doesn't ahve to be put in by the filmmakers. I thought the actors were fantastic, they felt very real. It is a film that I do recommend, but I am not sure about it's cinematic value, as opposed to it's reality value which is very high.

What's the name of Oliver stone's Sept.11 film? think its like World trade center or somethin . . . anyways, have you guys seen the trailer for that? it's idiotic. nicolas cage is in the starring role and it kills me. the trailer has a clip where he and some other firemen are standing outside the burning trade center, and he gives this hollywood-stereotypical "who's gonna risk their lives with me" phrase, that makes you want to puke. the real heroes of 9/11 deserve better.

Was there some kind of bleach bypass involved or some other development effect, causing this kind of overexposed, blown highlights?
