Despite the atrocious reviews we went to see To Rome With Love. Not as bad as the reviews indicated. This makes two WA movies in a row seen in a theater. It helps to have a local independent art house. They were bragging in a promo clip about purchasing digital projectors and their plans to move into the future. Not sure if that's good or not. Not thrilled seeing giant pixels on the big screen. I don't know If it makes a difference anyway since the first thing we discussed leaving the theater was how unviewable the big scenic pan shot was. I mean total visual chaos that seemed to go on forever. You had to shut your eyes. I liked the retro style of the film although the alitalia product placement would have been pan-am back in the heyday of jet set romantic comedies. In an interview with a main actor, (AB) addressed WA's hands-off directorial technique. Relaxing after a take ab asked the other actor in the scene, "do you
think he liked it?" Other actor: shrug.
