When did it become acceptable even among high-budget productions in holleywood, to film with a handheld camera? Since when is a cameraman nonchalantly propping up the camera in his arms and sloppily framing some scene while walking around the set considered reasonable and competent cinematography? Why do directors do it? They must do it as a matter of choice; perhaps the rise of 'reality' TV has made horrid cinematography acceptable?
