The Producers

"Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer!" This comment is appearing more and more in movies and television shows. Who the hell cares? Since when has the producer's hand had much to do with the artistic merit of the film? The new "serious" biopic of an Irish journalist who was murdered because she was investigating the drug trade (I think), which stars Cate Blanchett, is trumpetted as being "produced by Jerry Bruckheimer!" So what? He produces action pictures usually (like Pearl Harbour... nuff said) so -does this mean Cate Blanchett's new movie won't be too boring for those who like action pics?? Have you noticed how the new movie starring George Clooney and Catherine Zeta Jones doesn't have a director (at least, that's the impression you'd get from the publicity) but it IS produced by the same guy who made Ron Howard's oscar winning movie... The directors of that new movie are the Coen brothers, which fact actually makes ME more interested in seeing it since they are responsible for lovely, quirky films like Fargo and Brother Where Art Thou. Too quirky for Hollywood, no doubt. Hollywood doesn't want you to know they have anything to do with it. But it's produced by that guy with the spiky hair who produced that oscar winning movie starring Russell Crowe (better not mention HIM, either).
