CANNES, France (AP) — "As far as I'm concerned, digital projection and DCPs is the death of cinema as I know it. ... The fact that most films now are not presented in 35 millimeter means that the war is lost. Digital projections, that's just television in public. And apparently the whole world is OK with television in public, but what I knew as cinema is dead." — Quentin Tarantino, who was in Cannes to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Palme d'Or-winning "Pulp Fiction" and to introduce a 50th anniversary screening of Sergio Leone's "A Fistful of Dollars."
