Madsen Slams 'Homogenous' Hollywood

MICHAEL MADSEN has hit out at contemporary Hollywood film-making, insisting movies have become dull and mindless. The KILL BILL star is sick of the formulaic plots he sees at cinemas and is calling for a return to a golden age of great acting and carefully crafted scripts. He says, "Everything is just getting completely homogenised. "I grew up in a time when I watched actors like HUMPHREY BOGART and ROBERT MITCHUM. Those are the movies that I liked and I responded to. "They're all gone now and there's no talent like that anymore, there's no immensity of talent that exists like that in the motion picture industry. "They think if they put a handsome face in there or a good-looking body and they surround it with enough cars blowing up, that it is going to be entertaining... but in the long run it's just not going to last. "It's all empty, there's no story anymore."
