Reason's coverage of Atlas Shrugged Part I

Reason's commentary and videos on the movie adaptation of Ayn Rand's iconic novel, Atlas Shrugged


Here's your one-stop page for all of Reason's continuing coverage of the new movie Atlas Shrugged Part I, which was released on April 15.


On April 16, at Reason Foundation's annual Reason Weekend, Nick Gillespie interviewed producers John Aglialoro, Harmon Kaslow, and Mike Marvin, and actor Matthew Marsden (he plays James Taggart) live in front of about 100 people. They talked freely about the challenges of making the film on a tight budget and an even tighter deadline; how Rand's politics play in Hollywood (spoiler alert:poorly!); where the inspiration for the film came from; how the train and other memorable scenes were shot; and whether there's any truth to the rumors that Atlas Shrugged Part III will be a musical…

And then they answer audience questions…

About 40 minutes.

Reason.tv goes behind the scenes of the making of Atlas Shrugged Part I and explores the lasting legacy of Ayn Rand's work in this 15-segment playlist.
