No, it’s not your imagination. Nor is it deja vu. It’s just the annual story about how summer time is a place where there aren’t films for grown-ups.
The truth is that this is ridiculous on its face. There are plenty of movies out there for grown-ups and others not interested in slapstick, action heroes or any of the other usual summer fare. The problem is that it’s not distributed very widely and therefore not accessible. So it’s not actully the films that are the problem, it’s the distribution plans behind all those that don’t come with easy fast food tie in opportunities.
