make that 'dramatic fiction', if I wasn't clear about it.

I've spent some time comparing film shot at 30 vs. 24, projected,
transferred, etc.  ..well, I guess about 22 years now anyway.

It is something like the use of certain artistic filters on the camera
lens: hard to justify on a news film, but can be quite wonderful on a
feature.  I've worked on Showscan in telecine doing frame-per-field
transfer, and it can look amazing, temporally, but I don't like it for
dramatic film, nor even do I like the 'immediate' look of 30 (vs 24), as
it is that much closer to video.   This is my opinion, and I think you
feel differently.
