Film - LUX Prize 2009 (via European Communities, 2009 [EbS])

I found this a refreshing moment after the Hollywood (MPAA) and NewsCorp's control all media content. In the can - USofA film makers that means the rubbish bin. Hundreds of TV channels and 2 web portals and it is all junk save a few well written shows or films. Where are the 'media moguls' of the past who wanted to preserve an identity; dead of course. The current batch of producers/distribution brass here in the NaU (North american Union) have not bothered with anything except the profit margin (in a per minute price if they could).

Harsh? Yes, but I do get to spend 80 to 90 percent of my time with 4 cableTV sets and 2 Satellite Radios on 24 hours a day. I may be a bit saturated on Hollywood's Rx for the masses.

What do you think of this video? Make a comment. [Note: Not on my words, they kill english comp teachers & I will rot in hell for ranting. IamNotaWrtr]
