Personal Quote:

Small distributors have become like mini-studios. There's an expectation at this point, with these runaway successes like Napoleon Dynamite, that every film needs to make tons and tons of money to be successful. But the old-school independent movies like Mysterious Skin, movies that attack a challenging subject, need companies like Tartan. See more »
