I strongly suggest that you see the Avatar, even if you are not interested in the inventions of science fiction, or even if you hate the quasi-religious and ecological narrative of the so-called ‘new age’. Watch it, but only in theatres, where you will be given special glasses (which you can wear without any problem above the regular ones you might already have), in order to form a good idea about the potentials of 3D shooting, where Cameron believes the future of cinema lies.
The three dimensions transport the viewer inside or nearly inside the events. I think that ‘nearly’ will disappear completely with the evolution of this technology, especially the technology used in the theatre itself, but now we care to think about the purpose of this technology, and this purpose is already palpable in creations such as Cameron’s. If we consider the film as a theatrical scene, obviously incomparably more dynamic and flexible, the three-dimensional picture carries us onto the scene, and, depending on the decisions of the director, maybe face to face with the actors, as if we were in the same room with them, as if we participated in the plot, even as observers, but situated right there.
