Joe Camp goes his own way

When I was small, my mom took me to see the first Benji movie, which I just adored. The latest film, Benji Returns: Rags to Riches, is now out, and its director, Joe Camp, refuses to take film-making cues from Hollywood. Let’s all hope he does well. Children need more from film than the endless exploits of spy kids and Scooby-Doo.

One thought on “Joe Camp goes his own way

  1. I still haven’t seen the end of the first Benji movie. Apparently, something in the movie made me start bawling in the theater (bad guys hurt Benji or one of the other dogs, maybe?), I was extremely upset, and mom took me home.
