Narrative filmmaking has been inherently tied to profit-making from the very beginning.

Filmmakers weren't always beholden to Wall Street, but as soon Marey got bored with motion pictures (because "interesting as they are, are of little advantage to science") in the 1890s, the medium was dominated by people in search of a buck. I can't see any way around that.
