This will be the death of us if we believe it.

Another great Ebert discovery from his blog is the following preview from the new George Clooney movie where he plays the guy corporations hire to come in an perform huge layoffs (what a career, eh?). This is his "backpack" speech.

Isn't that just pure evil in a nutshell? The corporation telling you that desiring or having a life is essentially wrong...

Like I said in the title of this post, this will be the death of us if we believe it.

(Can't wait to see the movie.)

Now that is scary as Hell. I think the fascinating thing about horror movies is the comfort they provide. The Clooney movie is uncomfortably convincing, and the "message" is, "We keep doing this to ourselves! Why do we keep doing this to ourselves? We keep..." etc. Most horror movies' message is, "Hold onto yer seats, 'cos shit's about to get straight."

Good point about which is the true horror movie.
