No, I don't agree with that list. I just can't take it seriously as long as Black Mirror is not there.
Padre Tiempo is a short with a very similar style and was made 15 years ago, with Goya instead of Van Gogh:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0413085/?ref_=nm_flmg_cin_9
Unfortunately that means it's so old that the only online copy I could find is this horrible one that somebody hacked five years later:https://vimeo.com/3269897
Not available for me because I live in Spain. Why, oh, why... T.T
Color subsampling doesn't affect DR, at least not in a meaningful way. The a7S in 1080p 420 has around three stops better DR than the GH4 in 4K 422.
I expect that the DR of the a7R II will be on par with that of the a7S, because both use the same gamma curve (slog2).
