Interesting look at the money side of Hollywood. Through examining the business side of blockbuster, Epstein reveals some of the strange accounting tricks that studios use to make money but also provides answers to questions like: why are the villains in films increasingly white Americans working for corporates? why has the middle sized budget film disappeared in Hollywood? Why do so many average Canadian actors get parts?

Unsurprisingly, it all comes down to filthy lucre.

However, while he knows his stuff, I can't help feeling the book would have been greatly enlivened by some juicy anecdotes or case studies. Moreover, this is more a book about finance and accountancy than economics. Nonetheless, a interesting quick read. ( )
