Yeah, when I first saw the line up for this film, I thought to myself "How the hell can they do a documentary on digital filmmaking without Michael Mann, one of the pioneers of the medium?" I mean, he did Robbery Homicide Divison on DV when everyone told him not to, and then Collateral, where his DP walked off the set because he was convinced it wouldn't work. He even wrote a letter to American Cinematographer criticising Mann. Of course, then the film came out and it looked amazing. Miami Vice and Public Enemies too, whatever you think about them as films, both LOOK extraordinary. I would actually place Mann above Cameron in the evolution of digital filmmaking, so to not have him in this is ridiculous.
