The Film IndustryBook - 2009
We all love a great movie, but the larger industry that a favorite movie comes from has several controversies surrounding it. This collection of essays offers readers a for-or-against, balanced view of several film industry issues. Reading both sides to each debate will allow readers to develop a much more informed opinion. Compelling issues include whether the film industry influences at-risk behavior, whether Hollywood films are racist, and whether film ratings are effective. Readers will evaluate whether violence, sex, and profanity are increasing, and whether piracy has been exaggerated.
