because everything is supersharp and not forgiving like film.

@the electronic look:
The Red-sensor wants to be supersharp and precisely and has also many, many pixels on a "small" sensor, so you get a digital photography-look and this is the secret behind this "electronic look".
Shooting on Red is not cheaper than shooting on 35mm, when you do it correctly. You need more lights, more people to work in the camera department (also in postproduction), more makeupartists and another makeup, the production designer and costume designer have to work more precisely, because everything is supersharp and not forgiving like film.
I do not like the Red (till now), but it is sharp. And when you see unsharp moments, then I think, it is a focus puller, who also must work more precisely (it is really hard for focus pullers these days, because so many people think, that everything should be shot with f1.3 and minimum 100mm, which was easier on film; a little bit out of focus on film looks still great, on HD it is the death of a picture)... oh, and yes, good focus pullers are expensive, too
