Here we go again...seems everytime new tech comes along, the Luddittes moan the growing pains.
We went through this with vinyl>CD, 16/44 audio > hires audio, LD>DVD, 1080p bt709 8bit BD> 4K bt2020 10bit HDR BD...
I think most of his complaints are tech growing pains re: the film creation workflow. Looks like more work needs to be done to optimize image capture process through the display with the consumer.
As Directors, Cinematographers and others involved develop the tech, tools and methoiods moving forwards, I think these issues will be resolved.
Its not All or Nothing- Sonnenfeld makes good points re: not All films need/ought to be shot HDR, just like not All Films need to be color, or 1.78 or 2.35, etc.
Director's choice. But stream providers want the HDR marketing on Everything.
Interesting tech issues re: moire on fabrics shot at 4K+, non-issues with lower res cinematography. Again, resolvable moving forward through shooting or video processing techniques and ongoing innovation (Dithering, etc)
While IMO HDR, 10bit+/color and ever larger color spaces are all Good Things and desired by most HT-philes and rate higher than resolution increases, moar pixels is never a Bad Thing in the long run
As we progress through 8K maybe 16K in the home (Skies the limit for commercial displays at 40ft+ wide), they might be able to put the extra pixels to use in other cool ways, ie use clusters to make larger "virtual pixels", assigning color and/or luminence separately to the "sub pixels" of a group to increase/manage detail, contrast, gamma, colorspace size even more vs that achievable on a per pixel basis.
