    'The Film Studios are All Now Subdivisions of Huge Multinational Corporations': Director John Landis Decries Today's Film Studio

    Last week at the Mar del Plata festival “Animal House” director John Landis stuck it to the contemporary major studio film industry and its monopolization at the hands of multi-national corporations that in earlier decades, he remarked, had yet to leap onto big budget filmmaking scene.
