I went with friends to see this the other night, projected in 4K. The projection was quite nice, but the source material was, in my opinion, pretty sub par. Some shots were quite nice, with solid colors, rich blacks, and fine detail. Then, a subsequent shot would be appallingly grainy, with milky contrast, and so much grain, you think they'd shot HDV with the gain cranked up. The whole film was like this, and it was quite jarring at how inconsistent the quality of each shot was, especially considering it was digital. Overall, it was very disappointing from a cinematographic POV.

Anyone else seen it? Thoughts?

It was shot on the Genesis so it would've had to have been uprezed from 1080p to 4k for projection. But yeah I have seen previews and I had the same opinion about it. I think people misuse the Genesis and think that the grain on it is more filmic and set the ISO up to 800 or 1000 thinking that they can get away with it. They really should just leave it at the native 400 or 500, then add grain in post if they want with nuke or one of the myriad of other qualified pieces of post software to do so.
