Mean Creek (2004) was shot on 35mm film with some of the under-water shots and the shots where Josh Peck is "video-taping" things shot using a consumer DV camcorder. I'd say 99% of the movie was done with 35 though.
Thanks. When the film won the low-budget (??) film award at IFP, I assumed it was made on video then I was surprised when it looked like 35mm... It all makes sense now...all but the low budget. I thought it won in a $500,000 or less category.
by the way, I thought it was an excellent picture: great script, great acting and directing and the film really connected with me culturally. From the Northwest US. myself, the film had a powerful authenticity. I recommend it.
