"Modern Day GoodFellas" - Icks. You are right.I'm not a big fan of movies based on nonfiction, especially when they are so fresh in our minds and there hasn't been enough time to reflect on the situation, or get all the facts. We'll be drowning in this financial/political legacy of the past 20 years and the Bush admin for decades to come. It's almost treason what they did to this Country. But, I realize the value of these types of movies. Some people read news, and get it. Others, need a movie to put things into perspective and learn about the real world. Maybe that's just the roll of the media today. Everything is so mushed together.I tried to watch Recount this past week, but couldn't. I know the parties involved. I know we were royally screwed. Our Democracy stabbed in the heart and soul. I don't need to steep in it. But maybe, because it is so painful, this is the only way to learn about it. A good looking actor, helps the medicine go down.Kevin Spacey was in Recount, too.
