What did you think about it? I watched it the other night and wasn't crazy about it. Something about the way it was shot bugged the hell out of me.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

I loved it. I thought the cinematography was brilliant, how at the beginning it had the weird, artificial look of a Hitchcock flick, then as the movie progressed and we found out more and more what was going on, everything calmed down and got more natural-looking. I.e., more "real."

You don't see a lot of directors who can effectively change the cinematorgraphy style during the course of a movie, but Scorsese really made it work, I thought. ("28 Days Later" did it to great effect as well.)

It's probably worth noting that I saw it on the gigantic 120-inch HD screen at Marty's house.
