Canon developed the eye scanning focus for their cameras 30 years ago.https://www.dpreview.com/articles/6531126959/looking-back-canons-eye-con...
The shallow focus here gives a claustrophobic effect that would have tonally been okay for a drama, but not a comedy. Even then the incredible DOF that "The Master" had by shooting on actual 65mm film was overused by the director. A good example was the department store scene where J. Phoenix loses it. As the camera moves literally everything in the background is a total blur. When you over do it, it makes your scene look like it was shot in front of a green screen and the background was blurred out in post to give the illusion of DOF. Thanks for posting the informative article.
With all of the issues with "Rise of Skywalker" the screentime of Rose Tico is a moot point.
It's done. It's over. Finally.

Alax, if you look closely at most of the videos, they were uploaded in 4k HDR, which is great if you have an HDR capable set and watch your youtube videos on your TV. But, for 99% of people out there that don't own an HDR capable monitor, the resulting image does indeed look flat and washed out. AND there is no way to select a non HDR version. The only video that wasn't HDR was the two guys bowling video which was uploaded in 1080p.
