Ayn Ever Got an Invite

This weekend I hope to catch up with Atlas Shrugged Part 1, but I'm a little dismayed to read this from its businessman producer John Aglialoro, who says that after the mediocre box-office showing he's having "deep second thoughts" on why he should do Part 2: "Why should I put up all of that money if the critics are coming in like lemmings?" I can't speak for the other lemmings, but I never got invited to a screening or even received word of an imminent New York opening. Being unable to see the movie in time to review it in print in a timely manner, I chose to write about other films instead--in effect, "going Galt" on Atlas Shrugs. I can't say what impact the absence of my wise and judicious opinion had on the box office, but if other critics were similarly treated I'd say the market worked very efficiently to keep the movie out of the public consciousness.
