Apperently the director seem fine that the DVD and the theatrical version is constant aspect ratio.
The problem is filmmakers (and artist) sometimes fall to much in love with their work, that they dont do the right thing all the time.
If you ever tried and edited someting, you maybe watch the same content over and over, so suddenly whats seems OK for the one that edit, will seem stupid for someone that sees the same material for the first time. Because you go blind in the editing stage.
So the art sometimes gets better if you get perspective from a fresh viewpoint. Nolan is one of the most talented directors in hollywood, but I wonder what they served at the studio party, when they decided this.
To me this IMAX thing, seems more like a showoff then an artistic descision.
