something I'd be happy to get into a jovial shouting match about over pints, but [not] for the length of a feature film.

Alas, if you're someone who enjoys movies as, say, a two-hour escape, you may find this documentary on the death of film at digital's hands a bit too inside baseball.

The pro-digital propaganda feel is a major detraction

The documentary would have been that much better with a more explicit focus on why the average filmgoer should care.

Anyone who is interested in the history of film technology and cinema can certainly take something away from Side by Side, even if it is just learning the opinion of Robert Rodriguez or Danny Boyle.

Side By Side is a riveting, under-the-hood distillation of 100 years of Hollywood experimentation, innovation and expensive bravery.

Propelled forward by a determination on Kenneally's part to keep things fluid and fascinating rather than argumentative and academic, Side by Side is top-tier festival fodder and a must-own DVD item for any film buff.

In Side by Side, editor Walter Murch states, "In a way, film was the church of the 20th century." But the church of film is shutting its doors. Stained glass is being replaced by digital imagery. A new religion is on its relentless way.

I appreciate [Reeves'] interest and passion on the subject, and his interview style is fine -- the conversations he finds himself engaged in with the Wachowski's especially is worth watching it for alone.

A serviceable primer on the digital-celluloid divide in commercial cinema, if a bit unwieldy in scope and in danger of being made obsolete by the next version of the RED camera.

Possibly only of value to true cinephiles, but it's a vital education on the highs and lows of film vs. digital as the medium moves into an exciting new direction of creative access and picture clarity.

It's sweet and sparkling, as glassfuls of thought are provided by James Cameron, Martin Scorsese, George Lucas, David Lynch, Steven Soderbergh and other champagne cinematic cerebra.

Side By Side works as well as it does by celebrating the filmmaking practice as a distinctive art form no matter what process it uses to make images into motion.
