3-D Illusion

Cinema, since its inception, aspired for realism from the silent movie through the talkie and the technicolor to the wide-screen, the 3-D and the surround sound.  But the 3-D effect is still only an illusion on the flat 2-D screen, an illusive reality masquerading to be real and deluding the spectator away from the hard fact that the world we experience in life is truly and really 3-D, be it a townscape or landscape, a street vista or an open field, wherever the real action is.  A curious paradox, indeed.
