It’s movie night and Simon (that’s me) is of to see the Miles Teller and Jonah Hill stoner gun running flick.
I’ve read the non-fiction book the film is based upon and, gob-smacking revelations and stunning ineptitude aside, it’s not a very likable story. These are imbeciles who got extraordinarily rich peddling guns to warzones, and that doesn’t make them nice people in my book.
So I really hope this film, while enjoying the ludicrous story, has some bite to go with the fun. Something like Moneyball or the Big Short would be ideal. Review in the next episode.
