... worth noting. First off, I actually like the idea of Libertas. I genuinely believe that niche-targetting is not only the future of entertainment, it's not even a bad future of entertainment. Although I didn't particularly dig the film, I love the fact the Mel Gibson scored with Passion, which was a true indie film. Scored to the point he can now make a film about the Mayan societal collapse, also in a dead language. I like Libertas, because I like capitalism. You see, HOLLYWOOD LIKES MONEY. I cannot say that enough.
I am just more than a little distressed that someone who seems to have such little grasp of both how the industry actually works and no concrete ability to comment/develop films, not to mention a set of ethical standards that seem ... errr ... situational, is the guy collecting cash from well-meaning conservatives. This leads to the other note, which is that post started as the lead-in to the "Munich, movies and morality plays" post which is of some actual value to the Spec-Monkeys, but I just couldn't stop the smackdown. Hey, a guy has his weaknesses. That post will come later, probably Monday
