Subject: RE: BS: Evolution ... or perhaps not ...
I had never heard of any controversy here, but then I don't pay much attention to movies. I expect that it will eventually hit some of the art houses and cable channels. Unfortunately, having an opening at one of the major film festivals - even Toronto - is often the kiss of death for a movie.   I really feel that it is much less the topic and much more the prospect of loosing buckets of money that is keeping the major distributors away. The presence of religiously-based controversy doesn't keep movies from coming out in first-run theaters...look at the success of The DaVinci Code, for example.
