Anyway, most of them are only imitations of American imitations. And on the other hand it isn't an auteur cinema either, since none of them have anything to say. It's a cinema that limps along, caught between two stools, a cinema based on supply and demand, and on false notions of supply and demand at that. They believe that that's the kind of thing the public wants and so that's what they get, but in trying to play by all the rules of that game they do it badly, without either honesty or talent.
