Thank You For Smoking

by Jackrabbit Slim

I saw this over the weekend, and loved it. The director, Jason Reitman, was obviously influenced by films like Election, because he employs many "gadget plays" (to use American football terminology) like subtitles, freeze frames, and the like. That may bother some, but I eat stuff like that up. I laughed a lot at the cynical, satirical humor. I even didn't mind the performance of Katie Holmes. The film also makes good use of a Kingston Trio song that I've been humming since I left the theater.
