Film distribution at the crossroads


As we’ve discussed previously, going to the movie theatre ain’t what it used to be. But that’s true not only for the patrons of the cinema but the people distributing films. Turns out that straight to video, which is usually synonymous with terrible action films, is also being used for artier festival fare. And then there’s the online option, where you can order what you want, when you want. (And the ever popular torrent option, which does the same for free. 🙂 ) The NYT frets and ponders these developments in an article by film critic A.O. Scott.
