A recent article by Martin Scorsese in Harper's Bazaar has caused a bit of a stir. Click to read
Basic gist is that Scorcese argues that cinema has been devalued by being reduced to merely "content". A move he blames on media company bigwigs that care little for its artistic status and history. By categorising cinema as content, it reduces it to the same level as cat videos and the like.
Does he have a point, or is it a case of "things were way better back in my day"?
