Scott Calls On Hollywood To Pick Art Over Money
SIR RIDLEY SCOTT has urged Hollywood studios to stop making films for financial reasons.
The 69-year-old director fears too many poor films have been given the green light because studios know they will sell-out movie theatres - all at the expense of creative and innovative pictures.
Scott told an audience at the Venice Film Festival, "I'm not criticising Hollywood because I work there; I partly live there. But I'm saying this is the way it is, commerce is taking over art. Commerce has become the most important thing in the firm industry."
