Oh, you mean the vertical resolution won't get near 2160p? Fair enough, but by that same rationale the same should apply to a 4-perf S35 show matted down to 2.35 (which would use even less negative area than a 1.85 3-perf S35 movie, no?) and even flat 1.85, because all of those are losing real estate on the negative from what's exposed to what's actually projected.

Seeing as no flat format is actually meant to project the entire "full-frame" 4-perf 35mm ap then mentioning that is a bit disingenuous, and as for anamorphic, it's using more height of the negative for sure, but that advantage is negated somewhat by the inherent distortion and other foibles of the anamorphic glass. I LOVE anamorphic, don't get me wrongo, but I know of a veteran VFX supervisor who greatly prefers S35 for its sheer sharpness.

How long ago was that though?


Also digital everything from negative to final output seems to have mitigated any concern about possible loss of sharpness, not to mention Panavision's latest lenses.


More & more filmmakers have embraced anamorphic to where it's used in FLAT 1.78/1.85 shows like the aformentioned True Detective S2 and Scott Pilgrim, commercials and music videos.


The new Bad Blood Taylor Swift video also appears to be anamorphic.

Dude, they've been using anamorphic for TV adverts over here for years, never mind anything else - you don't have to sell me on it!

That's a contemporary opinion from said VFX supervisor by the way, he still prefers the overt sharpness and detail of S35 compared to the smooth look of anamorphic.
