Or that George Clooney and a best-actress win are not worth even a rental:
There are currently 1522 holds on MICHAEL CLAYTON at the Seattle Public Library. Given that I was once 549 in a cue for MILLION DOLLAR BABY, and my hold expired (a year from when it was placed) before I ever got my chance to borrow the DVD, I’ll predict that everyone waiting for CLAYTON will have to re-place their hold at least once before they get to watch Ms. Swinton’s performance.
The interesting thing is that the movie is still playing at Landmark Theaters, four times daily at the Metro. But I’m OK waiting 2 years for my free hold. So what makes a movie cinema worthy? Rental worthy? Free-from-library worthy?
