the look of " the eye "....

hi everyone.

i saw a film this weekend called "the eye". a japanese spooky thriller...
anyway, it just looked way different to me than most movies. i'm still a bit of a newb when it comes to recognizing how things were made, but i am starting to be able to discern some things. like for instance, i think i'm starting to be able to pick out high end digital material, like in TV commercials, etc.
but i don't have that sharp of an eye yet.

but this movie... it didn't really look like film. it looked like it had a whole different frame rate or something. i would say it had the look of interlaced video, but that sounds crazy!
it was really clear and smooth and not stroby at all. some of the shots almost looked like they were sped up, but i know they weren't. i don't know, it's hard to describe.
also, almost every shot had very short depth of field.

anyone out there seen this film who could weigh in on why it looked the way it did?

maybe it was shot on digital video, and i'm just in denial...

Heres a description of the film you mention, and a little screen shot showing your little "flicker" like image with the woman and baby..like interlaced video. Perhaps it was bad transfere to DVD or maybe an effect. I have not see the film. Was it any good??? Worth watching??

thanks for the link!

the movie was good, but not great i thought. it wasn't as scary as the press made it out to be... which was fine with me, because i'm not a huge fan of really scary movies. but it was cool. nothing new in terms of scary movie stories, though.
but definately some neat direction.
