Robert Redford slams 3D

Los Angeles - Robert Redford has slammed the use of 3D technology in movies.

The Horse Whisperer actor believes modern technology has "gone too far" in the industry, and he predicts there will be a natural "fall out" in years to come.

He told BANG Showbiz: "The fall out will occur on its own organically. It's not up to me to predict it, but yes I do, I think technology has gone too far. In time 3D, I'm not a particular fan of 3D, for certain things yes but not for so many things. I think it will find its way in or out, that's what I think will happen."

While he is not keen on 3D technology in modern motion pictures, the 75-year-old actor believes the audience will make the ultimate decision on whether such methods are successful or not and if they should be a part of the movie industry.

Speaking at the Sundance London Film and Music Festival at London's The O2, he added: "The audiences will decide. My feeling right now is that things have probably gone too far at some great test. It will find its own way, it's not for me to say."

      And it makes one think why The Artist was such a runnaway succsess, as a 'still movie'...?

    3D, as the name suggests, does add an extra dimension to a movie-viewing experience and makes it more interactive, as if you're a part of the action. However, inappropriate or over-use of the technology by film-makers may lead to an overkill of visual emphasis and could affect (and neglect) other basic critical film elements - plot, character development, ambience, dialogue etc etc etc. 3D is always awesome to view, as long as it's filmed in context. No use the 7pm news being broadcast in gorgeous, eye-blistering 3D if the content of the news itself is irrelevant to the viewer....
