Note "Obst explains what has stalled the vast-movie making machine. The calamitous DVD collapse helped usher in what she calls the New Abnormal (because Hollywood was never normal to begin with), where studios are now heavily dependent on foreign markets for profit, a situation which directly impacts the kind of entertainment we get to see. Can comedy survive if they don't get our jokes in Seoul or allow them in China? Why are studios making fewer movies than ever-- and why are they bigger, more expensive and nearly always sequels or recycled ideas?"--Book jacket.
