It needs to be said that the great majority of films released accross the world do NOT go through a DI. Since by 'wide' I suppose you mean big budget films released in the US, here are couple who come to mind:

- Batman Begins (Wally Pfister said that he didn't see the point of doing only a 2K DI for a film shot in anamorphic, since too much quality is lost)

- Phantom of the Opera (John Mathieson is not a big fan of DIs. He did do one for 'Kingdom of Heaven' though)

I am sure there are more, but I don't feel like breaking my head at the moment.

Some more:

Million Dollar Baby - Tom Stern - Panavision Anamorphic. One of the best looking films of the last year, in my opinion. It had a very sharp and clean image.

War of the Worlds - Janusz Kaminski - Academy Standard Flat (1.85:1). They didn't use a D.I. for the whole film, but there were lots of CGIs (which might be considered as a D.I. anyway).

Dimitrios,

I'm a huge fan of Theo Angelopoulos, although I was a little under-whelmed by "the weeping meadow". Have you ever worked with, or spoken to, him?

No,
He has a really tight circle of friends and cooperatives, and he works with them since his first films.
George Arvanitis is his DoP.Are we out of topic here? Excuse us Landon.
