Richard Brody explains why it’s impossible to recreate a film shot by shot: http://nyr.kr/1gfq7YE
“There’s no such thing as a pure angle or composition, any more than there is such a thing as a pure performance; the life of the creators are embodied in all the actions that bring a movie into being. And those habits of body are no mere accidents of upbringing but the very essence of a zeitgeist, of the spirit of the time as it manifests itself.”
