Finally finished Movie Wars: How Hollywood and the Media Conspire to Limit What Films We Can See by Jonathan Rosenbaum. It was brilliant. Any book about film will be outdated, however, there is a really problem with being limited in trying to find foreign films in this country. Blame it on lack of interest from the masses. Blame it on ignorant film critics. Blame it on distributors. Rosenbaum ultimately places the responsibility with each individual. I'll take the challenge to promote real cinema and to ignore Hollywood's machine. Who cares about the films that are an insult to intelligent people?
