Misunderstanding 3-D Indeed

Misunderstanding 3-D Indeed

A New Yorker article purporting to set us right about 3-D suggests that bonafide artists are discovering its aesthetic potential, from Jean-Luc Godard to recent Cannes entrant Gasper Noe. As the commercial use of 3-D is widespread and fully a third of theaters are equipped with digital 3-D, the writer asks if a “new breed of uppity 3-D” is at hand. “Could this be the onset of a novel, highbrow age in 3-D cinema?”

While the piece mentions Wim Wenders’ “Pina” and Werner Herzog’s “Cave of Forgotten Dreams,” and makes passing reference to James Cameron’s “Avatar,” there is no discussion of two Hollywood master auteurs who have led the way in the use of groundbreaking and masterful 3-D: Martin Scorsese (“Hugo”) and Ang Lee (“Life of Pi”).

Which leads me to wonder if this writer has a clue what he is talking about.
