I agree with you, I asked Paul Schrader why movies these days lack style, unlike back then where many filmmakers have their unique print, u could know who made this film if u watch few seconds of it without knowing who made it. Now everything is like everything else, so generic, so frigid, so soulless, so boring! He answered me: "Pre-viz and digital tech"
I don't De Palma made a movie with digital Camera before, except Redacted, which was intentional the use of digital modern media to put the viewer in the modern age of media in seeing the war.
I don't want to judge Domino before seeing it, but my expectations are getting lower by the days, considering his age, lack of funding, use of digital camera, troubled production, taking it out of his hands, etc.
Still, the word is there is a De Palmaesqe scene at the end in a Bullfighting arena, now that would make my decade in movies if nothing else will, even if the rest of the movie is lacking!
Howard Hawks once said: "A good movie consists of 3 great scenes and o bad ones". Let's hope that this will be the case here.
