On the IMAX screen, the scene had a lot less contrast than this still image has, and I don't even remember the bokeh standing out. I'm guessing that's a byproduct of lower contrast projection versus our higher contrast computer screens. The still I posted looks a bit jarring, but it didn't feel that way in the movie.

I remember a while back seeing a Netflix production that must have used a wide aperture S35 anamorphic on a full frame sensor, because the image was just out of control. And they used the same look from one scene to the next. I couldn't watch the show because it made my eyes hurt not being able to look around in the scene.



Was it Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead? The film was shot on the Red Monstro VV, which features a sensor roughly the size of full frame, it's a little wider but less tall. He then compounded that by shooting it on rehoused vintage Canon still glass at like F1.0. Most of the damn movie feels out of focus and it gave many people headaches.
