What grander achievement can there be in cinematography than taking something we know and have possibly even seen on film before -- like a historic cave or a simple piece of choreography -- and transforming it into something more real than ever before?
Before seeing Pina, I had agreed with the conventional wisdom that 3D was best suited for action and animated films, though the vast majority of 3D movies I'd seen so far had left me feeling like it shouldn't be used at all.
