I also am under the impression that all of Chris Nolan's films are photochemically timed and not digitally graded. There was a very public denouncement of digital imax a year or so ago in which people were calling the digital screens Lie-Max for there low quality. Obviously there is no digital system which even comes close to the quality of 15-perf 65mm acquisition.
