I had a conversation last year with director Drew Pearce, whose
credits include the Jodie Foster-led thriller Hotel Artemis, in
which he lamented at one point the “seismic change” the film
industry is going through. Nowadays, he mused, studios seem to
basically make either $5 million movies or $200 million movies —
artsy fare to win awards on the lower end of the budget spectrum,
and spectacle-driven big-budget epics at the high end.
That dichotomy has produced a strange kind of debate in recent
days. Specifically, a debate over the artistic validity of movies
from Marvel Studios, the implication being that they don’t deserve
to stand alongside artsier creations and with even legendary
director Martin Scorsese slamming Marvel films as “not cinema.”
Stars like Robert Downey Jr., in turn, have weighed in by
pushing back against the notion that these film lack artistic and
creative seriousness and don’t deserve to be regarded in the same
company as more traditional movie fare.
