The film itself was shot in 65mm — with Ultra Panavision 70 lenses that had not been used since the ‘60s. Tarintino’s reason? “It is one of the most dynamic and beautiful looking formats there is.” Check out the interview where Tarintino goes on to explain how shooting in 70mm allows movie goers a more intimate experience with the characters.
