Just saw this film - Bleed for this. my initial feeling was it was shot on film since it got the film grain. when I check making it looked like it shot on Alexa. My question how did they manage to get that organic feel like a film in a digital camera. Did they add film grain texture in the post or is it some kind filter or is it lens. Any kind of advice on this is helpful to me. Thank you

I didn't really see any grain in the 1080P HD trailer.  Just looks like naturalistic, often soft low-key or underexposed lighting and the Alexa's ability to hold detail in bright areas.  A few shots show a bit more halation than normal for the Alexa so maybe some sort of mild UltraCon or low-con, maybe not (the Alexa sensor does sometimes bloom around light sources.). But the organic look you are talking about is mostly just good lighting.
