I was in the middle of a second viewing of Moneyball (even better the second time) when a plot point struck an unexpected chord.
Pitt's Billy Beane laments the fact that he is basically farming talent for the better financed teams who swoop in with their deep pockets and snap up the talent he nurtured as soon as they hit their prime. Is struck me that the big Hollywood franchises do the same thing. Indie films find and support the Renners and the Downeys of the world until they're big stars at which point Marvel backs the money truck into their driveways and monopolizes their time with Summer event films.
I address the question of big budget Hollywood flicks hogging all the talent in this week's Burning Questions column. Head over to The Film Experience to join in the conversation.
