Filmmaker has some questions for Amazon

Corra friend Alex Ross Perry has an interesting take on Neon Demon and the current role of the art house theatrical run. “The art house is a layover you are lucky to have between your premiere and the film’s ultimate fate as one of a million options streaming on VOD,” he writes. This is the brief window where filmmakers et al try to make the biggest impression they can, with the aim of being recognizable when the title flits past on the Netflix or Prime screen. But is there a use for theatrical runs beyond a publicity stunt, or should we just be grateful that we can still see the stranger offerings from the indie world on the big screen?
