There has been a lot of upheaval in the movie business in recent years. Different methods of distribution and of projection have emerged, with an emphasis, unsurprisingly, on digital; the lament has already been sounded that within twenty years, there may not be a single place left in America to see an actual, physical, unspooling film. That will be a depressing day, in a lot of ways, but the art of film itself is in no danger, and it may well have been ever thus. (FULL STORY: A.O. Scott, The New York Times)
The death of film is greatly exaggerated. Maybe.
