“In my experience there are billions of dollars available for pieces of shit. As soon as the material distinguishes itself by something interesting, financing becomes a problem.”
Rutger Hauer is a world renowned philosopher from the Netherlands, a well-known critic. His quote on cinema is nothing but interesting to talk about. As he said,” In my experience there are billions of dollars available for pieces of shit. As soon as the material distinguishes itself by something interesting, financing becomes a problem.”
Resources and time is invested in projects that are not worth it. However, when art is being showcased, when it is really necessary to bring the talent and the art to light, that is when the financers become stingy.
The film industry and the cinema experience is a very powerful and influential industry to say the least. Therefore, it is necessary to acknowledge the fact that only the art, only the talent is what we invest most in. We have however, been downplayed and duped with money being poured into stuff that is not really art.
In order for us to really understand what the film makers have done, and see how we have been thrown to the dogs, and lied to, we have to give it a keen eye, a critic’s eye. This is what this blog is actually about, to bring to light what is behind the scenes, to critic it and to ensure that we are not lied to anymore.
I am here to let the world know, I have to share my sentiments and grievances in all matters movies, to bring to light the importance of financials in actual cinema.
With Rutger Hauer’s words in mind, we have to ensure that it is art that is showcased, and it is not just a money making business.
