And...if you think film has a look you can't achieve with digital, I suggest you learn how to process digital files. :~)
Gursky shoots a multiple day, large crew, planned out photo that has much more manipulation in post production than most know.
That's not a reason to or not shoot film, that's just the way he works.
The use of film is somewhat coming back as everyone is looking for a edge and for a certain group of "buyers" whether it's fine art or editorial they love the idea that a job is shot film, unless they need a lot of volume per day.
There is a well know, well promoted celeb photographer that touts film. His work is good, his production values are high though like gursky there is usually a lot of digital manipulation in post, so he could probably do the same thing with a medium format back and the results would be the same, but saying I shoot film will get ring some bells for the people that believe what they want to believe.
The problem with digital is first it's a roll your own color, second everybody has a digital camera. Some of the magic is gone, once it goes down the pipe and pops up on a screen, because people are use to it.
Film keeps some of the "magic" in the hidden box, until later when you present.
This circle spins and spins. There was a period where fine art galleries would only accept wet prints, then they would except Giclée even though it was just a cool term for inkjet.
Now nobody knows as long as you shoot or print well.
I've done two gigs because the clients wanted "film", though I explained I used older digital cameras with special sensors (in other words contax, phase and ccd) and they loved that thought.
Was it better than anything else, "who knows" was it accepted and did it work, yes.
I see it with our productions. I can set up two RED 1's, with PL,s monitors everywhere though shoot 2/3 of the gig with a tricked out gh3 and nobody cares, they just see big production.
It's not that the RED's aren't prettier out of camera and have a place, because they do, though content and creativity rules, catpure devices are just capture devices.
The bottom line is if you are getting what you like out of film, (and know the difference between film and digital capture), if you are getting work, or enjoyment out of your process, no reason to switch to anything.
But if your good on set and in post, you'll find there is no real difference.
