This all rather reminds me of the somewhat famous story of John Cassavetes ca. 1957 doing a radio interview to promote his latest film, "Edge of the City." About halfway through, he conceded that it wasn't a very good film, and that he could probably make a better one. He then urged all listeners who were tired of the same old Hollywood product to send donations to a certain address that would help finance said film. Well, the donations made up most (if not all) of the budget of the film, which turned out to be "Shadows"... and the rest is history. Cassavetes had no trouble finding acting jobs for the rest of his career (while still in good health, anyway). I guess I don't see much of a difference between that incident and this one... except that Cassavetes was slamming the very movie he was promoting.
