  2. Streaming vs. Theatrical

    Having programmed two high-profile Netflix premieres, Bong Joon-ho’s Okja and Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), in the main competition, Cannes was shadowed by a debate over distribution—theatrical versus streaming—and the role of heavyweight newcomers Amazon and Netflix. The controversy placed streaming services in direct opposition to cinemas, but the shifting landscape is more complex; for one, Amazon also distributes its titles with more conventional theatrical rollouts, and the same-day VOD release model doesn’t apply to every Amazon title in the market. This episode of The Film Comment Podcast focuses not only on streaming, but also on the interactions between global markets and studios, film critics and consumers, and cinephiles and local art house circuits—and why it’s difficult to make a monolithic statement about what the future holds. Daniel Loría, Editorial Director of Box Office Magazine, and Nick Pinkerton, member of the New York Film Critics Circle, offer up their insights in conversation with FC Digital Producer Violet Lucca.

  4. Here’s the Thing: James Toback

    This week Alec sits down with writer and director James Toback who makes movies on his own terms. His films include The Gambler, The Pick-up Artist, Love & Money, Black and White.

    Recently, Toback and Alec joined forces to make the documentary Seduced and Abandoned, which began as a story about raising money for a film, but soon became a study of the tension between art and commerce and how difficult it’s become to secure financing for independent films. Seduced and Abandoned premiered at Cannes and will air on HBO starting October 28th.
