Classic Film Series- Hollywood Eats Itself: Gods and Monsters (1998)

Film
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
B2 Conference Center

“There are two reasons why Hollywood doesn’t make films about itself. First, the few studio executives with power to greenlight a project assume what goes on behind the scenes is too inside for the average viewer to understand. Second, they assume audiences will not believe what they are seeing—especially if a filmmaker had the courage to do an honest exposé on the inner workings of Hollywood. Then again, audiences would probably be left wondering how, amidst all the lying, oversized egos, and backstabbing, any film ever sees the light of day.” – popmatters.com
