The XXI Century Films that Will Become Classics
Nowadays, the Hollywood system seems to be overshadowing the power of an auteur; everything is about the money. However, the indie film industry has been creating a new generation of auteurs that are making potential classics. There are hidden gems behind the Hollywood blockbusters that will someday become classics. The visibility of these types of movies has increased due to the growth of people’s interest in film festivals and the film world. Movies like "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" by Schnabel, and "Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind" by Gondry are the perfect examples of the pictures that are defining this generation. I want you to explore what makes a movie a "classic" and to find if there is a common thread among these movies.
What is worthy for A listers?
Since 2007-2008 TV has evolved exponentially. What used to be cinema’s little brother, has now become a top contender against the industry. In the old days, A list actors and actresses thought it was shameful to move from the big screen to the silver screen, normally, it was the other way around. Nowadays, we see big actors on the little screen. For example: Tom Hiddleston in The Night Manager, or Eva Green in Penny Dreadful, or Matthew McConaughey in True Detective. Can an A list actor or actress maintain their "tittle" even if they switch from movies to TV? Are there more opportunities on TV than in the film industry? Which one grants the most financial stability? Is it the quality of the shows or the networks behind them that attract the talent?
