[Marxism] Side by Side

Opening on Friday at the Quad Cinema and Lincoln Center in New York 
(nationwide roll-out information is here), “Side by Side” is a brilliant 
exploration of the tensions between traditional film and emerging 
digital technologies. As someone who has recently spent around $2700 on 
a JVC prosumer camera and accessories in order to take part in the DIY 
revolution, the issues are of keen interest to me (see my Vimeo story of 
the search for a near-perfect video camera below). But even if you own 
nothing more than a cell phone equipped to take videos or a modest 
digital camera with the same capabilities you will be richly rewarded if 
you see this documentary since it touches on a universal 
experience—going to the movies.
