Cinema as I knew it, is dead: Quentin Tarantino

Cannes: Celebrated actor-filmmaker Quentin Tarantino, whose iconic cult classis Pulp Fiction was screened here at the 67th Cannes International Film Festival, says the practice of screening films in digital has led to the death of ‘cinema as I knew’.

He also lambasted established filmmakers for turning their back on 35 mm film and ridiculed digital projections as a poor substitute for ‘the real thing’, reports
Tarantino attended the screening of Pulp Fiction with actors Uma Thurman and John Travolta for the movie’s 20th anniversary celebration. Of the current filmmaking trend, he said: ‘As far as I’m concerned, digital projection and DCPs (Digital Cinema Packages) is the death of cinema as I know it.’

‘The fact that most films now are not presented in 35 mm means that the war is lost. Digital projections, that’s just television in public. ‘ he added. IANS
