Great article, LucaM. My daughter is a Cornell grad and still lives in Ithaca - glad to see there's some Keanu love on campus. KR is one smart cookie and deserves to be recognized as such.

Side by Side
Christopher Kenneally’s probing doc about the movie industry’s changeover from film to digital uses an impressive roster of talking heads—Vittorio Storaro, George Lucas, Davids Lynch and Fincher—and up-to-the-minute examples to examine the epochal technical shift cinema is undergoing. Zen-surfer tour guide Keanu Reeves winds us through pro and con arguments for each format, but true to its title, the clear and concise Side by Side affords equal airtime to both sides of the celluloid-versus-pixels divide.

"For almost one hundred years there was only one way to make a movie -- with film."

Well, any movie that features Keanu Reeves and Martin Scorsese is a solid sell for me, but one that talks about the future of cinema is an absolute bible. In Side by Side filmmaker Christopher Kenneally lets Reeves do the talking and the actor (also the film's producer) interviews many of the most innovative game-changers in the world of cinema -- including James Cameron, Christopher Nolan, and Andy and Lana Wachowski -- to examine how the digital age has transformed the movies.

... an MA in Cultural Reporting and Criticism from NYU, huh? guess that explains the tone...
yeah, Side by Side should have been made for 'those of you who care about the stuff'. the civilians shouldn't bother their puny brains further than Discovery Channel, right?
thanks God for Keanu and Kenneally

Let it be known that I took the pilgrimage to the big apple to see Side By Side yesterday. Nothing yall don't know already excepting that Justin Szlasa, who is a co producer if I recall correctly, said that Keanu wants a copy of Side by Side on film. He then said that it might not happen because of money...Justin was there for a brief Q&A. The theater was totally packed. Keanu's voice was heavenly.

@Softie, No one asked about a theatrical release but due to the documentary/technical nature of the film I can't imagine it at your local cineplex. I would like a dvd but there was no discussion about that. Sry.

Ok, thanks for the info. I'm in Chicago (third largest market in the U.S.) where there are a couple of theaters that play really great, really small niche films so I'm hoping one of them will pick it up if the film makers do indeed try to distribute it. There are a lot of film/photography/art nerds in this city who would really find this material interesting.

Plus, I just have see Keanu on the big screen and more importantly hear him (in his own voice no less) in surround sound! They must make this happen for me! :)

Softie, I'm with you. I'll meet you there, when it happens! Who knows it might even show up here at our local arthouse cinema.

Arya, I'm so jealous you got to Tribeca to see SbS. Tell us more, please. Did you like the film? Were KR's various outfits and facial hair states distracting, as one review said? Or was it fun seeing all his incarnations?

I'm really interested in this film from a variety of angles, not just KR, so I can't wait to see it, period, but I agree I would like to see it on the big screen.

The film’s other producer, some bearded dude named Keanu Reeves, also serves as its host.

LOL!

“Keanu did the majority of the interviews,” says director Christopher Kenneally. “And he geeked out as much as us. It was like, ‘Awesome, man, I get to meet David Lynch!’” Kenneally says Reeves also helped put the film’s interviewees at ease. “Within seconds, Keanu and Lars von Trier were laughing together,’ says Kenneally. “That seems like an accomplishment.’

Aww, you gotta love that man...
