MORE IS MORE IN INDEPENDENT FILM

The above is an interesting take on indie cinema from The New Yorker. Too many movies being made?

Manohla Dargis, of the Times says: “Stop buying so many movies. Or at least take a moment and consider whether flooding theaters with titles is good for movies and moviegoers alike.… It’s hard to see how American independent cinema can sustain itself if it continues to focus on consumption rather than curation.”

But Tim Wo counters: "It’s easy to look back at a year of films and say that only the good films should have been made, but that’s like saying that venture capitalists should fund only the Twitters and Googles and not bother with anyone else. It just doesn’t work that way."

I agree with Tim.

You?
