Re: “Hollywood historian Peter Bogdanovich talks about what made classic films great

Years ago when I was in college, I used to be able to go to the movies between noon and early evening. The showings were the first of the day and a few times I had the theater to myself. Never was there more than five other audience members and they were very quiet. I watched every film that was nominated for an Oscar that year. None of them became classics. What I did learn is that a audience can get in the way of the film experience more than it can add to it. With a large enough screen (60" or larger sitting close enough with a properly dimmed room and a good sound system) the theatrical experience can be just as powerful as a movie theater. The venue is less important than ever with Cinema. I do however, agree with Bogdanovich about the niche madness that is afflicting Cinema now. Fewer and fewer artists are involved in the Cinematic process and the new product is becoming hackneyed and very disposable.
I will no longer call it film making because a good number of high quality works are now being beautifully captured digitally in higher and higher resolutions. With this obvious fact, film is becoming less and less relevant to the medium of Cinema and the audience is getting a more intimate experience.
