Given the dreck that some major studios are releasing these days (”Battlefield Earth,” anyone?), you could do worse than to scope out such festival-tested indie films as, say, the pig comedy ”Scrapple,” or the pool-hall drama ”Chalk,” or the beach documentary ”Surfer Girl.” This L.A.-based enterprise, dreamed up by cinephile Babak Forutanpour, displays synopses, reviews, and streaming-video trailers or clips for each film – then provides video or DVD buyers with contact info for each of the movies, so all profits go directly to the filmmaker. Now that’s a home box office.
