Texas Film Commission Denies Incentives to 'Machete'
The feature film Machete has carved a divide between Robert Rodriguez and the Texas Film Commission, which has denied state incentives to the director, reports the Associated Press.
Film incentives allowed by Texas law to encourage moviemakers to film in Texas were not bestowed upon Rodriguez's satirical story of an assassin out for revenge because of its depiction of a Mexican immigrant revenge killing.
Citing a legal provision, last week the film commission proclaimed that it had decided to deny funding because the film portrays Texas or Texans in a negative fashion.
