  1. This is an interesting conversation between Radio West’s Doug Fabrizio and film critic David Denby of The New Yorker: “Do the Movies Have a Future?” The title is a bit misleading, but it is well worth a listen. Also, one of the harshest reviews of Les Mis I’ve seen and why that film is symbolic of the lack of depth in contemporary Hollywood pictures. http://radiowest.kuer.org/post/do-movies-have-future
