I was very excited to see Artificial Intelligence show up on HBO's schedule last night but quite dismayed with the picture quality. Was this film made to look this grainy or was it something that HBO/DirecTV was doing?


Just wondering.

It was that grainy evidently, since the issue has been much discussed, and HD has the resolution to bring it all out for us to see.

The dvd was also very grainy, the film was shot that way intentionally. Many directors/cinematographers regard the presence of film grain as part of the artistic presentation of the film. The Godfather films are also very grainy for the same reason. This would be analogous to the very visible brushstrokes in impressionist oil paintings. The higher the resolution the more this inherent film grain will be evident.
