Steven Spielberg Speaks Up Netflix's Roma
According to Uproxx.com, "On Saturday, veteran filmmaker Steven Spielberg continued his fight against the mounting presence of streaming-based original movies like Netflix’s Roma." Steven Spielberg told the press, “I hope all of us really continue to believe that the greatest contributions we can make as filmmakers is to give audiences the motion picture theatrical experience.
I’m a firm believer that movie theaters need to be around forever.
I love television.
I love the opportunity.
Some of the greatest writing being done today is for television, some of the best directing for television, some of the best performances [are] on television today.
The sound is better in homes more than it ever has been in history but there’s nothing like going to a big dark theater with people you’ve never met before and having the experience wash over you.
That’s something we all truly believe in.”
