Incredible article from The New Yorker.
What is the world of cinema coming to when even arguably the creator of the blockbuster, Steven Spielberg, laments the state of the studio system in the US and reveals that his ‘Lincoln’ bio-pic almost premiered on HBO!
Without a doubt the landscape is changing dramatically. Studios just don’t seem to have the interest, or guts, to make anything other than the most mainstream of films, and, the article opines, this is leading to a golden age of independent producers!
It’s a fascinating read and if you are in the movie business this for sure is today’s ‘must read’ article.
