HollyCons Speak, But Is Hollywood Changing?

Posted on January 6 2010 1:30 pm
Michael van der Galien was born in the Dutch city of Leeuwarden in 1984. For as long as he can remember, he has been obsessed with the United States. When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic. He's also an editor for the Dutch conservative blog, De Dagelijkse Standaard.

After 9/11 Andrew Klavan began writing criticisms of the anti-America war movies being made and soon found himself isolated in an industry where his work once flourished. He said his phone “just stopped ringing.” Interestingly, he said that the production companies couldn’t tell the difference between a war film that was pro-American to one that wasn’t. Their continuously tanking films led them to believe people didn’t want war movies. In reality, people just didn’t want war films where America is the villain.

Klavan went on to tell us that the biggest misconception about Hollywood is that they are “just about the money.” He noted that movies don’t have to make money to be good for a filmmaker’s career. These films get good reviews and the filmmakers are rehired, so there’s the problem. Leftist filmmaker’s are speaking truth to power, only it is the power that hires them and not the real power in our country. The best way to change Hollywood is not only from the inside but also from the outside arenas that provide people like himself a platform to speak from.
