Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, Spielberg described VR as "a dangerous medium."
Dangerous for whom? Is he worried about viewers feeling nauseous during graphic scenes of dinosaur savagery? No, he thinks VR is dangerous for producers and directors like himself.
"The only reason I say it is dangerous is because it gives the viewer a lot of latitude not to take direction from the storytellers but make their own choices of where to look," he said.
Movies are like many other mediums of old. They depend on those who create them controlling what you see.
If a director can't offer you a shot from just one particular character's point of view, you might become obsessed by something entirely irrelevant to the story, something that was perhaps inserted onto the set by a precious, obstreperous designer. Or worse, a techy type.
