Nap time. I got so sleepy during the first segment of this 168 minute film, that I knew it was time to leave when the "Insider" was losing his house and his wife was crying because the mean 'ole tobacco company was doing him wrong and all I could think about was "can I make it a little longer?" without snoring. I felt I could not so I did the honorable thing and left with about two hours to go. Yikes. I left the theatre to go shopping at Oshman's for some socks with the intention of returning to Loew's to catch a substitute flick, but I was so groggy from my experience that I could not shake it so I had to come back to the office. As I prepare this "review" the movie is still going. Please note that I got eight hours sleep last night. A bad movie just knocks me out!
The stars in this movie are Al Pacino as a CBS producer, Russell Crowe as the insider of a big tobacco company that wants to tell his story but is afraid, and Christopher Plummer as Mike Wallace of CBS. And the story is about...I do not give a rat's foot. Rock 'n Roll.
