I don't disagree with you Daniel but the film industry needs money/box office to continue; it's like any other business really.

I also feel that it's a shame that many well made movies don't do good box office, but it's the commercially successful movies that allow studios and certain filmmakers the leeway to continue to make movies of any genre. It sucks yeah but it's a reality we all have to live with.

And Leo is so correct: they sold the controversy not a good story.

[QUOTE=Although a good book, Dan brown sold the controversy better I think.[/QUOTE]

I didn't read the book or see the movie, but in the early '90s I ready 'Holy Blood, Holy Grail' which has the same idea, but presented as true. Well, the authors say 'not proof, but evidence', which is fancy dancing IMO.

You may recall the authors sued Dan Brown and lost.

Anyway, at the time I read it, I thought the whole proposition was nonsense, but that if I had all that material at my disposal, I'd fictionalize it and make a bundle.

Now Brown has gone and done it!
