Have you folks seen the trailers for Lions for Lambs, the upcoming Robert Redford movie (starring and directed by Redford)? I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a more pretentious and off-putting trailer than the two I’ve seen for this flick. Near as I can tell, it’s two hours of Redford and Tom Cruise lecturing characters about international relations. Now, I like politics as much as anyone — my bachelor’s degree is in political science — but this looks like the most excruciating movie experience I could imagine. What kind of marketing campaign is this?
