Wild West Compressed
Christian Kaufmann | 2:39 | 2019 | Germany
Cowboys galloping through vast landscapes and gazing melancholy into the distance, this is the wild west! Here on the wide screen the epic duels between bounty hunter and outlaws are told, here the limitless freedom of the American frontier is celebrated. But following the slogan “vertical is the new widescreen” even the western has to keep up with the times. With the new “Mobilescope” the genre expects of its cowboys the same cool performance as we are used to. Will that work well?
