Hello ladies and gentlemen, Muldoon here with a trailer for (as the title suggests) Keanu Reeves' SIDE BY SIDE. The film centers around the new-age dilemma of film vs. digital. While I personally embrace digital filmmaking and think film is on its way out (or at the very least think it will be more of a lost art in ten years), I'm truly curious as to where the pros stand. Sure some, like Rodriguez and Cameron, have almost gone out of their way to sing the praises of shooting digitally, but what about people like Scorsese, Lynch, or Christopher Nolan? It looks like we'll get definitive stances from those A list directors along with countless other heads of industry. Check out the film's website for a list of everyone appearing in it if you're curious and prepared to drop your jaw.
(Lynch and Reeves, together at last...)
And here we go:

I think the movie looks like fun and can't wait to check it out. Special thanks to the folks at IndieWire for first posting this cool little bit of news. Its world premiere is in a few weeks at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 15th, so hopefully we'll get a few reviews in. At the very least, everyone seems to be smiling, so no "Sad Keanu." What do you guys think?
