Thank You For Smoking

    7 April 2007, early morning

After watching the Prestige, Shima and I watched Thank You For Smoking. The film follows a tobacco lobbyist during a particularly trying period of time: he’s trying to take care of his son; a hot shot journalist is on his case; they want to brand cigarettes with a skull and crossbones, etc. He manages to get through all these crises using hit wits alone. It’s a strange film if only because you find yourself rooting for the lobbyist — somewhat anyway. He’s a smooth talking salesman sort of guy. There are a ton of cameo — Rob Lowe’s is very funny. It’s a short fun film to watch. There isn’t much substance to it I suppose.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
