No true movie junkie is going to want to miss Side by Side. In case you haven't noticed, digital capture and projection are slowly sending old-fashioned celluloid into the archives. What does it mean for movies? Keanu Reeves, making an astute and witty interviewer in Chris Kenneally's vital film, asks many of our best directors where they stand in the digital revolution. Their answers might surprise you. Steven Soderbergh and David Lynch are eager converts, while Christopher Nolan and Martin Scorsese feel a loss. The film clips, side by side, are revelatory. Jump in.

    “Vicious”

    Lou Reed | 1972

    Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
