Netflix and Amazon are pushing out the last major studios still seeking smart movies for adults

There are some filmmakers who, despite the creative freedom and fat paychecks offered by Netflix, won’t work with the streaming service. Nate Parker reportedly turned down a $20 million offer from Netflix for The Birth of a Nation in 2016, and took Fox Searchlight’s $16 million bid, because he thought the studio was a better fit. Netflix, notoriously, doesn’t offer the wide theatrical releases most others do, which has spoiled old-school filmmakers like Christopher Nolan on the service.
