Hollywood Nation

"...the 'Hollywood doesn't reflect mainstream America' argument is one of the oldest and phoniest in the playbook."

Read a great piece by James Wolcott

I don't know about all this flattery about Hollywood values. I think mainstream America values are by no means so outlandish and middling as wealthy movie stars might seem to think. Bowling for Columbine was a mainstream America movie. So is Why We Fight. On a less serious, but by no means less relevant note, so is Dave Chapelle's Block Party. I think Hollywood could stand to look a mainstream America a little harder.

What garbage! Hollywood "reflects" anything that will make them money. Period.
