Mike Leigh joins in in condemning Hollywood’s dominance over British screens

I just found this…

From: The Guardian, 29 April 2009

‘Mike Leigh, speaking at Queen Mary University of London this week… condemned the “tragedy that innovative, important, entertaining work is being made, but doesn’t get an airing on our screens – because we are flooded with material from the mostly sterile source of Hollywood”. In film, he added, “there is, and always has been, tons of unadulterated shit”.’
