Poll: Do We Need a New New Hollywood?

In the 1960s, Hollywood relied on expensive movies that entertained mass audiences in order to assert itself against a Golden Television Era and the threat of decreasing revenues. This lead, as it was perceived to some extent, to a creative downfall. However, the reaction was eventually a more realistic and free-spirited New Hollywood movement, in which the directors largely controlled the creative process.

Today, there is a similar situation - or is there? And if so: Do we Need a New New Hollywood?

    Min-sik Choi and Hye-jeong Kang in Oldboy (2003)

    Yes, BUT: Other countries, inspired by classic American cinema, make fresh and interesting films similarly to the French Nouvelle Vague of the 60s.

    American filmmakers should not only be stimluated by their own country's heroes but also by foreign innovators.

    Paul Dano and Hugh Jackman in Prisoners (2013)

    Don't get distracted too much by some blockbusters; they're now what "Airport" was to the 70s. There already is a wave of serious films that can be compared to New Hollywood.

    SpongeBob SquarePants (1999)

    Films only reflect the times in which they're made - and the film industry is ultimately more about money than art, so it's only going to change when the populace does.

    Hugh Laurie and Greg Finley in House (2004)

    It's TV's Golden Age, so you should shift your attention exactly there and not shed a tear over the downfall of cinema.
