I was a bit confused about Magnolia opening Leon Gast‘s Smash His Camera theatrically on 7.30 despite the doc having preemed on HBO roughly seven weeks ago (on 6.7.10) and still being available via HBO On Demand. (I reviewed it favorably just prior to this debut.) The solution, according to a publicist, is that “the film is scheduled to stop airing on HBO and will no longer be available on HBO On Demand next week.”
Why not, right? It’s an amusing, above-average film, and well worth a theatrical looksee. Not everyone has HBO or has the time to watch everything on it.
