Caught a preview screening last night. I think it was by far the most desaturated major release I've ever seen.

About half way through the war scenes I was trying to figure out how the look was achieved. It seemed like a very high contrast image where the shadow information was already gone and then a separate step to milk up the blacks without adding shadow detail.

While not the most "beautiful", I thought the look suited the story well--and a visual departure from the ENR of Saving Private Ryan.

The DI is by Technicolor. There is an article in the ICG magazine. At least Eatwood and Stern stick with anamorphic, not like all the other pussies who are migrating over to Super35 DI ;)

I thought it was a great book and a terrific film. The look of the film was perfect. They really were able to seamlessly blend digital effects with real world to create Iwo as it probably was on that February in 1945. I was especially moved by the way time and feelings were combined and connected.
