It's WONDERFUL. You NEED this!

Does anyone recall - Keanu mentions a movie in the 90s where he had a tear put in his eye digitally in post, and how upset he was about that - which film was that? A Walk In The Clouds? Sweet November? He says he now requests in his contract that he have approval of digital image manipulation.

Thanks in advance!

Sweet November.

I'll always remember it because it made me mad at myself for falling for that tear ;)

Thank you. In the bar?

I think he says in Side By Side - "early 90's" - seems to me that was "A Walk In The Clouds," but I would have thought he'd have had a lot less creative control at that time.

OK, thank you. Yeah, I do recall that. If the actor has a tear, great, but fake tears look REALLY fake to me (I think). When you start manipulating emotion in post, there's no reality anymore.

Completely Virtual Neo in the Burly Brawl takes me out of the movie, the first moment I saw it. I'm perfectly happy with it in situations where the actor - or stuntperson - is in actual danger (the subway fight when Darko - I think - crashes into the booth). But to do the digital effect "just because we can" seems the opposite of creative process to me.

It's fascinating, and in my opinion, most commendable, that in Side By Side Keanu only occasionally comments, but when he does, he is VERY emphatic.

I agree with you, MmeRenard. The Burly Brawl is the weakest part of the movie and it sticks out like a sore thumb. :/ Nevertheless, I respect the Wachowskis' vision and ambition in an attempt at pushing the boundaries and creating something new and groundbreaking.
BTW have you seen SBS Vol. 3 and what did you think of it? I plan to buy that one, because I'm interested in Cameron's take on digital vs. film debate.
