Essay Writing Time = Reading Like a Crazy Person

“We must define entertainment as a commercial commodity, produced and consumed as part of a capitalist industrial system. In return for the price of admission to an entertainment, we expect to witness some kind of performance produced by people who make their living performing for paying audiences.”(Maltby, 56)

– ‘Chapter Three: Entertainment 2’ in Hollywood Cinema: Second Edition by Richard Maltby, 54-73 (Oxford: Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2003).

What can I say, I enjoy paying George Clooney and Béyonce to do their job! With films, you don’t receive a commodity or physical good, instead you receive a service, an experience, a set amount of time “entertained”. Sans aucun doubt, j’adore le département du cinéma et l’audiovisuel et la philosophie que nous apprenons sur l’industrie du divertissement.
