The Top 10 Political Lies of 2010 has been very helpful to my post research topic last month. The provided quotes have been my basis all through out my research but it was not an easy one. Currently, I am working to my newest research topic about Kevin Smith. Hollywood prefers secure commercial ventures. High-risk, creative works from directors with unique points of view can't purchase a green light from big-time distributors. That is why noted independent movie-director ]Smith of “Clerks” and “Dogma” fame is bucking the system and distributing his next movie himself, states the Hollywood Reporter. The fictional thriller “Red State” is located upon the exploits of controversial Pastor Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church. In order to keep away from Hollywood hemming and hawing over how to market such a film, Smith paid himself $20 in a mock auction for the movie's distribution legal rights.
