Allergy To Originality: A New York Times Op-doc

Melville said, “It’s better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.” Which sounds like something a guy who’d just failed would say. “Allergy to Originality” asks why today’s multiplex is so often brimming with sequels, remakes and plain imitations, then answers with a trip through art history at the speed of Wikipedia. A 2014 Sundance selection.
