PINA

When Roger Ebert said that 3-D is “unsuitable for grown-up films of any seriousness,” he probably didn’t reckon with the mind of German director Wim Wenders, who chose the new technology to film his documentary on the late German choreographer Pina Bausch.

Wender’s use of 3-D for art, as opposed to spectacle, is nothing short of groundbreaking. At Century.
