Thank You For Smoking

Saturday, June 24th, 2006

Went to see "Thank You For Smoking" last night and really enjoyed it. An excellent satire about spin, PR and media manipulation. Smoking is more of a McGuffin to hang the story on than an issue the film explored. To go into it in any detail would risk spoiling it so I won’t. The acting is excellent and while he doesn’t have a lot of screen time Rob Lowe, playing Jeff Megall, has one very priceless moment where he pretty much steals the film without even blinking. They could probably make an equally biting film about that character if someone had the inclination.
