Numerous ‘dates’ with movies have made us expert in perceiving entertainment to some extent. But we don’t need to push hard to make out whether any project has strong inclination towards those financing the production or not.
New Hollywood, or to be precise, the new wave cinema movement was a break away from the control of production houses. The band of new filmmakers, with the ability to think outside the realm of mainstream cinema, was the torchbearer of the movement during the early 60s.
The filmmakers and actors during this period decided to do away with the fictional narrative, and instead, focused on realism. And it resulted in the incessant flow of movies that were feisty and high in artistic value, and have remained ‘fresh’ until now in 2011 movies also.
The touch of realism paved way for bold representation of sexuality on screen, and it variably hit the right chord with the audiences. As a result of which, a new revolution in cinema made it presence felt all across. And quite surprisingly, the new-generation movie lovers are still inclined towards such realistic movies.
And why shouldn’t they be?
After all, cinema is a representation of life and the more a film’s narrative is attached to realism, the closer it is to the heart of the masses. With access to movies online, you can draw a comparison between the mainstream films and parallel movies, produced over the years.
Undoubtedly, we would witness that more and more commercial films try to follow the new wave cinemas, so as to surprise the audience now and then, if not all the time.

Not only as a writer/reporter have I done stories on the show and its stars, but I also have been an avid watcher and fan for more years than I care to admit. I've visited the set, met and interviewed many of the stars, and can truly say that
