Ang Lee’s latest film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk tells the story of a young soldier reeling from the effects of war all while being honored at a football game at home. To tell the story, Lee chose to shoot (and present where possible) the film in an unprecedented 120 frames per second and in 4K 3D.
