am not so sure I should "save" a film whose market
value amounts to
$48 million. Maybe my energies are best directed
towards those indie
gems that die a premature death after showing for a
week at an art
house in NYC's Greenwich Village -- as Godard put it:
I understand your concerns about a campaign to "save"
a mainstream studio production--but is this a group
devoted to strictly avant-garde films alone?
I want quality films--period. Just because an artist
(or in the case of film, a group of artists) makes a
good living producing their craft does not
automatically mean they "sold out."
When it is all said and done, I get very, very tired
with that sort of anti-mainstream reverse snobbery.
