  • A scene from the movie Kodachrome

    A dying father and his estranged son go on a road trip in order to reach Dwayne's Photo in Kansas before it stops developing Kodachrome for good.

    Matt (Jason Sudeikis): "You would have saved us a lot of trouble if you shot digital."
    Ben (Ed Harris): "Did you ever hold a pair of fake tits in your hands?"
    Matt: "What?"
    Ben: "No matter how great something looks, you can't beat the real thing."

    Lovely sentiment. Although I must admit, the fake stuff is pretty great these days.
    A formulaic plot but the actors are fantastic and an M4-P gets some good screen time.

    Re: A scene from the movie Kodachrome

    About 25 years ago our company was purchased by Kodak and I had the pleasure of visiting parts of our plant which were within the main Kodak facility in Rochester NY State. it was so large it had it's own power station within the site.

    It's a sad shadow of what that company once was that most of that real estate is sold off now

    And to reflect on this and what's real... the film Kodachrome was released on Netflicks (digital channel)... would have been nice to have it in the pictures, but I suspect a lot of cinema's can't handle film anyway these days

      Ah, the curse of digital, damn it! ��

      With regard to the film-movie "Kodachrome", there is a way to display the nuanced differences by shooting in film, then digitising for general consumption. Many motion picture films are shot and presented this way.

        I believe this was the case with that film... otherwise I would have been scathing in my response - even though I don't use film any more I sort of miss it

          Cheers, will take a look at this film.

          I kept rolls of Kodachrome in my fridge until recently. Maybe I thought they'd start processing it again...

              Rose tinted specs. I'll bet that if you went back to film you'd soon realise it wasn't as great as you remembered!

                Indeed Jim. But I think I've lost some discipline in what I take which can give useful results, but I suspect is just taking up disk space

                  Film wasn't as great?

                  No, film is even better than most people remember!

                    The class of people who knock film are part of a collective who don't use film.

                    On the other hand, those who use film are also on the digital Venn, so they know what they're talking about when drawing comparisons.
