Sometimes, catching a movie in the early afternoon when you have nothing better to do is perfect. Like yesterday, when I went and saw Thank You For Smoking yesterday at the Guild 45th. Sunny weather, but it was still raining. I was bored, just driving around the city and decided to stop in wallingford. Then I noticed that the next screening for the movie was starting right then. I bought a ticket and went inside, just in time to catch two trailers before the movie started.

The movie itself was fantastic. If you break it down, it's really a character study of this man whose job it is to be hated while he tries to have the best relationship possible with his son. It's fun to watch all the interaction between these different people and it's also very interesting to watch how people justify working for these companies which are 'evil'.

I don't feel like writing a long review. I never feel like writing a longer review, it seems.

I really want to see that movie. I figured it'd mostly just be a satyre about the smoking industry, but the view of it as a character study makes me even more interestede in seeing it. I really like multi-demensional characters who operate according to morally ambiguous if not downright contradictory values.

The smoking industry, the lobby industry and hollywood are all the subject of the satire, but it's definitely character driven. You would enjoy this movie quite a bit, I think.

I talked with one of the actors in the film about it, and he seemed really excited about it. I really should go see that soon... I'm glad you liked it.

If I were involved in the making of this movie, I would have been excited about it. It's quality film making.
