So much respect for Christopher Nolan who has it exactly right. He knows not to rely on gimmicks:
Although he’s all in favor of new technologies, he’s hesitant to adapt or use anything before it’s time tested – in a theater for certain and ideally in front of audiences.
New technology “has to cede what comes before that, and it hasn’t done that yet.”
There is obviously nothing wrong in following trends. We would be lying if we said we did not. But we have objects and artifacts around us that we still like to associate ourselves with. We recognize work that is still cool. Maybe they remain timeless because they do not let a trend be their sole identity.
