He is so right about the cinematography in the movie. It is an art form like no other. If you don't get that right it would ruin the whole movie. They strive to make it perfect at every level where the audience can feel like it's really happening.

I get really into my movies so if it's not good or if I can tell when a stunt man has taken over because I can actually see that it is someone else...that just ruins the whole movie for me.

I wish him luck, but so many people are good at one thing and yet not another in the same industry.
