no argument there, Phil, and I'm well aware of the difference between the
different media. but the fact is that you (and I and just about everyone
else) happily capitulate to various technologies and media for convenience
dvds and video tapes before that along with television has meant that I have
been able to see films that I would otherwise not have seen, and to be able
to look at faves like tarkovsky and kurosawa over and over again, how they
edit, how they compose, etc. Not something realistically feasible for most
people with film prints.
