From Criterion, James L. Brooks On LOST IN AMERICA

    I remember describing “Lost in America” in my 1985 review as “the best American comedy as ‘The Graduate.””
    I still feel that way. Along with “Top Gun” and “Wall Street,” it’s the most iconic, time capsule movie to show future generations what American life in the Reagan era was all about.

    I love Lost in America, but Albert’s best film for me will likely always be the brilliant Modern Romance (though I admit Lost in America is the better choice for Movieman’s time capsule).

What about replacing Mr. Spacey with another actor? Mr. Plummer, perhaps.
“That would theoretically be fantastic,” Mr. Rothman said he responded. “But I have supervised 450 movies over the course of my career. And what you are saying is impossible. There is not enough time.”

“Would I like to see Wormwood in a theater on a big screen? You betcha. I’d be disingenuous to argue otherwise. But we’re all part of, like it or not, an industry, and what Netflix offers is an opportunity to do different kinds of films in different ways. Maybe part of what is being sacrificed is that they no longer go into theaters. If the choice is between not doing it at all and having it not go to theaters, it’s an easy choice to make.”
