Seeing it in non-1.43:1 didn't diminish the experience? :o

not at all, but 1.43:1 will benefit it I'm sure, lots of moment where I felt like WOW that would be amazing in IMAX. If I saw 1.43 first then I'd think lesser of this version probably

It was 70 mm after all, so the impact must still have been fairly great.

It wouldn't have been if it had been a regular digital screen, I assume.

How would you rank it among other Nolan movies, Ant? And here's something not usually asked of people who enjoyed something: what's its biggest flaw?

So five minutes of the prologue = 15 minutes in the actual film?

And:
I'm glad the extra stayed in. Taking the extra out would have been a concession, no matter how small, and a sign that Mr. Nolan compromised his vision because of outside influence, which I don't want.

And it's not that big of a deal. 400,00 men, one of them being a psychopath is not that big of a reach.

So five minutes of the prologue = eight minutes in the actual film?
