Description

For many cineastes, 70 mm is far more than just the designation of a film size. Its large-format images combine high resolution, sharp picture, and color quality with overwhelming sound quality. "70 mm" represents a unique kind of harmony, a code signifying cinema's true potential: a singularly impressive experience for both the eye and the ear. This book is about the history and technical development of wide-gauge film. It contains an essay and glossary by Gert Koshofer, a comprehensive list of 70 mm film titles (with commentaries in some cases) covering productions from the USA, the USSR, and Europe. There is also a data section, with detailed filmographic information and contemporary film criticism, documenting all the films in the Retrospective "70 mm - Bigger than Life."show more
