There are positives and negatives to the approach. We might welcome the immediate, first-hand qualities of a short time-lag film (for want of a better term). Or we might prefer the perspective that a delayed film can bring to the table. But there are other considerations. Whether the film's exploitative; its cinematic worth; and, most importantly, the feelings of any connected to the real-life events - surely all these factors, and more, will bear on whether a film's "too soon".
So what are Coffee Housers' opinions? Have you ever thought a film was released too quickly after the event? And how would you feel about, say, a Madeline McCann film being in cinemas next month?
