I was watching Alien(1979). I am referring to a subjective shot of the character played by Harry Dean Stanton while searching for a Alien. I could see very minimal Barrel Distortion at the edges of the door. But in many films which shot in anamorphic, i have observed easily noticeable distortion.
How could have DoP Derek Vanlint reduced this?
And there is no closeup of Harry Dean Stanton preceded or followed by this subjective shot. Would it purposefully eliminated?
