Is film commerce or
art? On one level, filmmakers have a responsibility to those that provide the monetary means for the creation, distribution
and display of their work; in short, they must fill seats in a theater which has become increasingly more difficult today
with the pressure of opening well during the first weekend and with the advent of home entertainment which is again a threat
- something the size of a theater screen (i.e. widescreen format) cannot solve. On another level, film is an art form
- a statement of our times. Film is successful when it serves both purposes.
