[URL=http://www.dailycardinal.com/article/1608][B]Uwe Boll officially throws in the towel on big-budget movies[/B][/URL]

[QUOTE]Boll has officially declared he is through with making big-budget movies after his latest film, “In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale,” flopped miserably at the box office.

But those of you who expected a Nixon-style “You won’t have Uwe Boll to kick around anymore” speech are sure to be disappointed as well. When asked for comment about his cease-fire on the medium, Boll told The Hollywood Reporter, “In the future, I will focus on small films such as [video game adaptation] ‘Postal’ or [Vietnam war film] ‘Tunnel Rats.’ These are films that represent my true passion, and they can be done with small budgets.” Of course, Boll didn’t feel it was important to acknowledge that the German government, which had subsidized many of the native German Boll’s films, had just officially pulled all of their funding.[/QUOTE]The German gov funding bit was the bit that caught my eye. It's really the only reason he's been able to keep producing, was because they kept throwing money at him, even though all he made were flops.

I laughed at this bit:[QUOTE]For what it’s worth, I see Boll as a tragic victim of his own vanity. He is, like Max Bialystock in Mel Brooks’ “The Producers,” a man drowning in failure in a society demanding success. Sometimes the only thing a man has left is his pride, and Boll deserves his just like any. He, like a million other middling Hollywood people, was a filmmaker who someone saw talent in once, but that supposed talent has yet to be put to good use.[/QUOTE]I guess he has yet to find his "Springtime for Hitler"... ;)
