In the LA Times, Patrick Goldstein praises Sony Pictures Classics chiefs Michael Barker and Tom Bernard:

In many ways, Sony Pictures Classics is a throwback itself, the last of the old-fashioned studio art-house divisions. While its competitors are eagerly emulating Fox Searchlight, which hit pay dirt by blending critical successes like "Sideways" with youth-culture films like "Napoleon Dynamite," Sony Classics has largely stuck to the same model it had when Barker and Bernard started the company with Marci Bloom in late 1991. (Barker and Bernard's partnership goes back to the '80s at Orion Classics and United Artists Classics.) If Searchlight is wooing the audience that watches "The Daily Show," Sony Classics is aiming for the readers of the New Yorker.
