I agree with Anthony Kaufman (Here and Here) that foreign cinema will get hit hard by the formation of Dream Machine. What I'm not sure about if this is anything new. Isn't it is just one more flare on the difficult road that both foreign cinema and American art films have been on for the past couple of years? A small, vocal audience certainly exists but the crossover that would otherwise make the economics work for a distributor doesn't seem to turn out all that much anymore. I guess the good news is that in a couple of years from now some entrepreneur will see an audience that is underserved and find an opportunity to make money by exploiting foreign cinema new and old.
