Agreed. Optical filtration adds that x-factor when done right, in a way that I couldn't have imagined before I started throwing Promist in front of the lens.
Post effects cannot do nearly as well as optical effects in regards to filtration.
The point stands. In the end, if the director doesn't like working with you, you will be replaced.
