Went to see a movie tonight. Saw “We Don’t Live Here Anymore”, with Mark Ruffalo and Naomi Watts. It’s a little faux-art-house flick about two couples dealing with infidelity.
One sentence review: It wasn’t sad enough.
One side comment: It was released by “Warner Independent Pictures” (Warning! That link uses Flash!). That’s “Warner”, as in “AOL Time Warner”, the gianormous media conglomerate that controls most of what we see, hear, and read. But they’ve created a little spin-off that’s supposedly “independent”? How? Just because they put the actual word “independent” in their name?
I hate the fact that Newspeak is alive and well. Orwell created the idea as parody, for Pete’s sake.
