I knew about the use of deep focus in CZ I just misinterpreted his post. Thank for clearing that up anyway.
I think I agree though, but saying that the envirnments and sets you shoot around are horrible is not really a good excuse and using deef focus and minimum editing (like Stanley Kubrick, Orson Welles in CZ, and Scorsese) would look bland to most viewers who want pure entertainment.
Its a different case entirely with commercials though and thats understandable. Im also disappointed to see even big-budget movies like Spider-man 2 look so boring; other than the SFX there is nothing in the movie that makes it look like a 250 million movie.
