See The Film The Hunting of the President
As part of this year's Los Angeles Film Festival, there was a screening of The Hunting of the President. It's good that I didn't see my screening copy of The Hunting of the President. It was great to get the full impact of it on a movie screen. This film is about democracy and those who want to destroy it. Also, it was good to be with an audience; there were interesting reactions when certain people came on-screen (For the record, I let out the loudest "boo" in the audience when Howard Kurtz appeared on-screen; here's one of the reasons why). It was also great because the directors Nick Perry and Harry Thomason came out for a Q & A after the screening.
It's my hope that all the publicity surrounding Fahrenheit 9/11 won't leave THOTP with a smaller audience. Every American, especially those sitting on the fence--should see this film. There's so much that I can say about the film. It raised many important issues. One point it touched on was how the rubes slickers the big-city reporters--I am still incredulous about how many in the mainstream media were suckered by the transparent cons by yokels like Larry Nichols.
Here's what I'm asking you to do:
1. See the film.
2. Take a friend.
3. If you're a blogger, recommend the film.
