So George Clooney likes “being a little out of touch.”
Hollywood in general doesn’t care just how out of touch it is. The latest example is “V for Vendetta,” produced by the same brother team that made the “Matrix” films a few years ago. Based on what used to be called a “comic book,” now called a “graphic novel” by the geeks and fan boys who buy them up, the movie has been turned into a left-wing marketing tool not so much against Operation Iraqi Freedom, but against the American government and its honorable attempts to prevent terrorist attacks here at home.
The movie (its website is here), has been getting awful reviews, so there is hope that it will quietly disappear without much noise. But think about this. An anti-American screed (set in London, so we won’t be able to make the connection, we suppose) released on St. Patrick’s Day. It doesn’t so much show a lack of understanding of the American people, it shows disrespect.
