As you may recall, the first two parts of the Atlas Shrugged movie adaptation were not exactly a huge success with audiences or with critics. Critics are not a problem, of course; they can be dismissed because they’re just part of the Liberal Media Establishment. And if audiences stayed away, well, that’s just because maybe they were simply not ready for the Important Message of an Ayn Rand movie — they’ll find it, they will, and it will change their lives. But the epic must be finished, and unfortunately, not a lot of money rolled in from the first two outings to finance the third. Never mind what the free market said about the need for the third installment, there’s a goddam Artistic Vision here that needs to be fulfilled. And so co-producers Harmon Kaslow and John Aglialoro have gone on Kickstarter to raise $250,000 to help produce part 3, Atlas Shrugged: Who Is John Galt? As the A.V. Club says, it’s just what they had to do in order to “propagate its titular character’s manifesto to ‘never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.’”
