A Christmas Carol. 2009. USA. Written and directed by Robert Zemeckis. 95 min.
With Jim Carrey, Gary Oldman, Colin Firth. Adapting the classic Dickens Christmas tale, Zemeckis constructs the most formally innovative of his motion capture films, moving toward a use of extended shot sequences that André Bazin could only have dreamed of. Rendered in one continuous take, the “Christmas Past” episode fully taps into the expressive possibilities of 3-D.
