Intended as a corrective but ends up a delicious exposé instead.

While Stolen Summer looks like a disaster (I haven't yet seen it), Project Greenlight itself is a grimly fascinating if dubiously contrived piece of television.

Project Greenlight is a must for anyone eager to break into the moviemaking business. The educational show thrusts you into a place where viewers were never allowed before.

Rarely do we glimpse the drudgery that's involved in bringing movies to life. "Project Greenlight" offers a rare and unvarnished glimpse at the friction-filled cogs and gears that drive the Hollywood machine.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

It is a fast-moving, entertaining series that offers an inside look at the creative process and what producers and studio executives are looking for when they option scripts that may be made into films.

Project Greenlight opens a door on a culture usually seen only through the hazy gauze of the Hollywood hype machine, and leaves the audience better informed about that world, and the way it shapes the way we see the real one in which we live.

If you're one of the thousands who apparently aspire to break into the movie business, this series is not without value. It's also not without tedium.

The result demonstrates that there's nothing more enjoyable than the crashing failure of a hubristic chump.

Sep 6, 2019 | Full Review…

It's fly-on-the-wall moviemaking, a must-see for anyone hoping to break into the creative side of the film business.
