Hollywood Explains the Economy, Part 2

In the financial world, one man’s hero is another’s villain. That’s particularly the case in the two films about the 2008 financial crisis that we’re discussing—Too Big to Fail, a docudrama based on Andrew Ross Sorkin’s book, and Inside Job, Charles Ferguson’s documentary. Because it’s been many years since I covered the Chrysler bailout as a cub financial reporter in Washington, I decided to ask some of my favorite financial gurus whom they considered heroes and villains in the crisis. Almost none of them wanted to be quoted by name. But after I promised not to identify them, they sent me their extremely strong, often salty views.

Hollywood Explains the Economy

HBO’s full-page ad in Monday’s Wall Street Journal for its new film on the 2008 financial crisis, Too Big to Fail, billed the made-for-TV docudrama as “the true story behind” America’s (and the world’s) economic near-meltdown. Brilliantly acted, well directed, and based on a book by Andrew Ross Sorkin, the movie has gotten much-deserved praise and even some wildly enthusiastic reviews from movie critics. Too Big to Fail is Hollywood’s second effort within a year to explain the enormously complex crisis to the American public. The first was Inside Job, which appeared last summer. It did surprisingly well, given its complex plot and lack of interviews with most of the disaster’s perpetrators. Its director, Charles Ferguson, won an Oscar for Best Documentary.

La vérité sur... l'aide de la France à Hollywood

Pour attirer les productions étrangères sur son territoire, la France a fini par s'aligner sur ses voisins en consentant un crédit d'impôt.

Survoler Metz en montgolfière, dîner au milieu de chefs-d'oeuvre dans le tout nouveau Centre Pompidou lorrain, arpenter les galeries souterraines de la ligne Maginot ou le chantier naval de Saint-Nazaire, être reçu dans la bibliothèque classée du château de Serrant (Maine-et-Loire) par une authentique princesse... Dix des plus grands scénaristes américains ont eu droit, fin septembre, à la tournée des grands ducs. Ce « voyage d'inspiration » (sic) était organisé par Film France. Cette association au financement public a été créée en 1994, sur le modèle des bureaux d'accueil de tournages fondés aux Etats-Unis dans les années 1950. En stimulant l'imagination, elle espère bien instiller un peu de France dans les scénarios et, in fine, récupérer sur nos terres tournages et devises. Mais à quel prix ?

Classic Hollywood: Summer was a different movie season before 'Jaws'

Classic Hollywood: Summer was a different movie season before 'Jaws' | On Hollywood Film Industry | Scoop.it
Besides scaring swimmers everywhere, "Jaws" changed the summer movie landscape.

Before the release of the Steven Spielberg-directed thrill ride on more than 400 screens on June 20, 1975, about a great white shark on a feeding frenzy around fictional Amity Island (Martha's Vineyard), the summer blockbuster didn't really exist. The studios' major films, such as "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Sound of Music," would play in a big city's movie palace sometimes for more than a year before heading to the neighborhood theaters.
