Ford v Ferrari’s Strong Anti-Corporate Stance

“What it is about right now, is that Marty’s movie is at the Belasco and then is going to be on TV in a month. That’s what the frustration is about. Because I’m as in full agreement that movies look too machined and tailored. Not just movies. Food. Airline trips. Television shows. Everything feels market-tested,” James Mangold (director of Ford v Ferrari) recently said on an episode of LA Times’ podcast, The Reel, when asked for his take on the recent Martin Scorsese vs. the MCU war that has been waging for what seems like six months now. “I think this is a cultural-wide problem,” he continued. “I think it’s about trying to hook audiences back into what unpredictable, more audacious art feels like.”
