The Discerning Texan

All that is necessary for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.

As always, the free market speaks louder than any propagandistic film director (or those "playahs" who are led down a primrose path by one.) I heard that Mark Cuban actually tried to sell the film back to De Palma, an offer which was politely declined. Which makes this particularly sweet:

Brian DePalma's award winning anti-war movie earned $25,628.

It was made for $5,000,000.

That is a .5% return.

My first documentary cost $35,000 to make, and thanks to the supporters of the Outside the Wire project, has made $23,464 or 67% return.

When one guy with a camera is beating Hollywood in rate of return and almost beating Hollywood in gross receipts--Hollywood has a problem.

Yep. A big one. (h/t Glenn Reynolds)
