Andrew O'Hehir in Salon surveys the terrain of indiewood, which in business terms he accepts as "a side strategy of the Hollywood conglomerates" (this is from a quote from Bob Berney, president of Picturehouse). O'Hehir observes that "'independent film' has hovered on the edge of meaninglessness for many years, in fact, and 2006 might be the year it finally fell off the cliff." And still, he is enthusiastic about the year's releases and offers a top ten stacked with off-Hollywood entries.
