When film is made - it comes on a huge sheet and is cut into strips and 
lengths needed  ie 35mm X 36 exposures.  The process of "Coating" the 
micro thin emulsion on the base layer is the key to good quality film.
Kodak holds many patents and trade secrets to this process.  Others 
including Fuji, Agfa, and Scotch don't have the expertise so the results 
are micro thin peaks and valleys in the coating - results - film that 
changes from roll to roll even within a "batch".  Kodak is the only 
company that provides the emulsion quality from roll to roll within a 
batch.  Pros buy "bricks" of 20 rolls because they will get the same 
results within the brick.  This same quality can be found in comsumer 
film found at Wal-Mart etc.  Seattle Film Works film is Kodak Movie film 
which is good- but not what anyone who is serious about quality 
photographing should use.  Don't cut yourself short when buying film or 
processing.
