Hollywood is not just a place – it is a world in itself. Hollywood has done something remarkable: it has created a great and very successful religion. Through its successful missionaries – the films produced in Hollywood – it has spread all around the globe, gaining adherents faster than any other religion in the world. If it has not attained the stature of a full-fledged religion, at least it is a very strong cult.
– Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz, Simple Words
