Brian Glazer: ‘Movies Now Are More Disposable’

'Get On Up' Premiere And Tribute To Brian Grazer  - 40th Deauville American Film Festival

Brian Glazer, receiving a reward at Deauville before the festival premiere of Get on Up, told Hollywood Reporter that the increase in movie content is undercutting the impact of film on society. “The long-tail experience of a movie has less impact on the culture than it did 20 years ago. Even the biggest blockbusters and the biggest successes of this year have less influence over society and the culture than they used to. I don’t think movies can have the same impact on the culture that they did 10 years ago before technology really entered, leveraging scale into the platform. I think movies now–even if they are successful–are more disposable. There are movies that came out this year that made hundreds of millions of dollars and you don’t even remember them.”

Brian Glazer was given the career achievement award, and was joined onstage by Get on Up co-producer, Mick Jagger, star Chadwick Boseman and director Tate Taylor. In his speech Glazer thanked Ron Howard “partner and best friend” for their success in collaborating on films. He appreciated the award, but wasn’t sure if a lifetime achievement award was the right term, because his life “is not over yet.” He has an upcoming book, A Curious Mind which, in addition to describing his life in the entertainment industry, has passages treating pivotal meetings with those not in showbiz, like Carl Sagan and Jonas Salk.
