Working Title Mark II: a critique of the Atlanticist paradigm for British cinema
Abstract:This essay explores the economic and cultural subordination of British cinema to Hollywood. In particular it analyses how the subsidiary mode of corporate organization allows Hollywood to drill down into national and regional cultures and talent. It offers a case study of Working Title, a nominally British company and Billy Elliott to show how the subsidiary mode works and with what culturally detrimental effects.
