Death of mid-budget films

How the Death of Mid-Budget Cinema Left a Generation of Iconic Filmmakers MIA Flavorwire

It's three pages, from two years ago but still relevant. A lot like how people complain about the death of mid-list books.

Re: Death of mid-budget films

Just the middle class disappearing on all levels. & sometimes i don't understand the complaints, at all. Waters can't make a low-budget film because he has four assistants to pay? That's not a luxury position, somehow?

Re: Death of mid-budget films

Been thinking about this more and I think I have noticed over the past 5 years, films by veteran directors looking cheaper than they previously did. Gregg Araki springs to mind.

I think it is being proved that sometimes no matter how creative you are, sometimes a lower budget is going to show painfully.

Re: Death of mid-budget films

I view countless films and scribble reviews constantly.
There are plenty of mid tier movies made.
Foreign films, arthouse, indie, you name it.
Nevertheless, you must wean yourself from Hollywood product.
Much of that can be soul destroying, hackneyed, cliched, Christ almighty.
Blockbusters - superheroes - try to avoid.

Re: Death of mid-budget films

I guess I got lucky. Weaning myself off of Hollywood pictures has been really easy. But then again I am getting older and popcorn flicks aren't meant for me anymore.

Re: Death of mid-budget films

There is another argument about the matter that states that because of big budget movies the industry may at some point implode:
