Over at Instapundit. (with some suggestions on how to make an Iraq war movie that can actually connect with its audience.)
The great advantage of the free market is that sooner or later the bean-counters step in and force the artistic types to reconnect with their audience. Their act will be condemned as the end of artistic freedom in Hollywood when in fact it will be part of Hollywood's renewal process.
This is the great weakness of the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) and the BBC: these moments never happen. Their foolishness continues on, seemlingly forever, until one day the public gets fed up and kills whole thing.
Incidentally, I think Instapundit reader Don Wolff is right when he "says it doesn't matter, as Hollywood will soon be replaced by videogame-based platforms for moviemaking anyway. "One or two more generations in tech development, who'll need Hollywood to make movies?""
Don't believe Don? Click on the link and watch Call of Duty 4 - Splintered Edge. The creative destruction of capitalism may yet destroy left-wing Hollywood the way that it is in the process of destroying the record companies today.
