hello guys for you what's the best detailed imax cinematography in a nolan film for me i think the dark knight wally pfister has a different kind of style to sharpen the images i think better than hoyte's one but hoyte is more stylised he really plays a lot with depth of field like the cockpits handheld shots sometimes you can spot only the fuel switcher in focus i think that's great

I hated the edge-enhancement used on TDK.

I think Van Hoytema fucking aced it with Dunkirk. Holy shit, with all the things they've done with the film. Dunkirk is perfect, perfect, perfect

This. Interstellar has some really great shots, Dunkirk has only really great shots.

Right, they decided to use the IMAX 70mm print on the Blu-ray, which made the non-IMAX shots look god awful because of all of the sharpening applied to them for IMAX theaters. I wish they used the 35mm print for the non-IMAX shots. There is just way too much ringing on that Blu-ray.

They seemed to learn their lesson with TDKR and Interstellar, though I don't know what was different. Maybe just not as much sharpening for the actual IMAX 70mm print itself.
