GreenCine Daily: The New Depression Cinema
I'm always amazed when some critics and business analysts trumpet the idea that the Hollywood system doesn't exist any more; though that's theoretically the case, as the article demonstrates, the production line mentality still exists. Films are still developed around genres and stars even if the genre is mumblecore or the star is Ellen Page -- they have to be for marketing purposes and especially now that the audience is so fragmented. The problem these days is that whereas in the 30s, cinema was still developing and innovation was still happening even in the likes of quota quickies, processes have stagnated and cliches abound even in what purports to be independent cinema. It's amazing that anything of worth is still being produced.
