the way film should be

Saw Zidane: a 21st Century Portrait last night. I've never been so completely immersed in a film. It is beautifully shot (apparently by 17 cameramen, all from Scorcese's and Almodovar's camera crews) with meticulous multi-dimensional sound, a perfect soundtrack by Mogwai, and no dialogue, other than a few subtitles containing Zidane's thoughts on the game.

It says a lot about what it means to be the best at something. It also makes me want to shoot a film.
