Cannes Interview: Christopher Nolan - Film Comment
There’s something else that’s very important. Technology—actually I don’t call it technology . . . the medium of film as it existed in 1968 was vastly superior to what we have now. And you have to put up a presentation like this for people to understand, because they just don’t believe you otherwise. With analog film there’s an emotional involvement to the material, there’s a depth and there’s an openness to your relationship to the imagery and to the narrative. I mean, I can tell you with absolute certainty that if we had screened a DCP [Digital Cinema Package] last night [the presentation] would not have had that response. I know that in my bones. I know that it was about the freshness of the experience, it was about the emotional content. A lot of the information is thrown away when you digitize. In sound terms it’s overtones and subtones—things that you can’t consciously hear. An analog medium has all kinds of complicated cross-talk between the different frequencies of information that you’re getting, which have a particular character to them. We are finally waking up to the fact that our new systems are inadequate compared to the photo cameras. They do something different. [Digital] solved a lot of problems we had before with the wear and tear on prints, and it was a tremendous step forward in terms of consistency in presentation. But I call it the McDonald’s approach—and I’m a fan of McDonald’s. Everything is the same. It’s not Michelin-starred fine cuisine. You’re bringing everything down to a consistent level, but it’s well below what movies can be. And that’s what last night was about. Y

【感想】大島弓子『秋日子かく語りき』ー白と黒- | いつだって最終回
"真っ黒なコマが分割されて、つづく。
それってどういうことかというと、おなじ真っ黒なコマだったとしても、語り手にとっては最初のまっくろのコマと次のまっくろのコマはちがうってことになります。

つまり、たとえばこのまっくろのコマがキャラクターの内面領域をあらわしているのだとしたら、そのキャラクターの内面領域は、〈まっくろ〉な、ことばにできないような空間でありながらも、それでもちがった意味をもつような階層構造として分割されているってことだとおもうんですね。ただ十把一絡げな内面なのではなくて、ことばにもできないけれど、その人物のなかでは、きちんとなにかの分割はできている。"

DIPLOMATS the world over know that a well-chosen turn of phrase can make or break a negotiation. But the psychological effects of different grammatical structures have not been investigated as thoroughly as they might have been.
