Went to see "An American Carol" the other evening. Because I like comedies and am hopelessly politically incorrect, I enjoyed the film. (Even if the mega-plex put it in the smallest theatre in the complex.) The puzzlement was the choice of trailers. (When we began calling previews "trailers" I don't know, but I bow to the popular usage.)
Okay, "An American Carol" is a movie satirizing Michael Moore. I expect trailers that were either comedies or vaguely patriotic. Nope. We got – Oliver Stone's upcoming film about George W. Bush, a movie about Harvey Milk, the famous San Francisco gay activist, a cinematic version of "Doubt," a play about clerical sex abuse and nuns, and something else I can't remember right now. Huh? We all just sat quietly and waited for the movie to start.
