In an interview with The Independent earlier this week, two-time Academy Award winner Dustin Hoffman stated that he believes the film industry is in the worst state that it’s ever been.
After spending over 50 years working in film, Hoffman decided to speak out against his own industry. In this interview, the well-known actor claims that the film industry has only deteriorated in quality since he has worked within the industry. Likewise, he believes that television is better than ever before.
Hoffman doesn’t blame filmmakers. However, he see’s the reason behind the film industries downfall is the business model the industry has created. By this, he is referring to the pre-established franchises and big-budget blockbuster films that are continuously made.
