A Movie To Watch: Hollywood vs. The Media

It's clear Hollywood has a better sense of humor about itself than the Media does (e.g. The Player, with Tim Robbins).

Imagine a movie that stars John Travolta.  Also starring is Dustin Hoffman.  Alan Alda has a major supporting role.  Another eight characters, seven of whom I recognized, had more than 50 IMDB entries each (Robert Prosky, Blythe Danner, William Atherton, Ted Levine, Tammy Lauren, William O'Leary, Raymond J. Barry, Lucinda Jenney).  And yet, Mad City is probably not a movie you have heard of.  Whether you are an AIM'ster or FAIR, Free Republic or Daily Kos, this is a movie you can appreciate.  Funny how you didn't hear about it when it came out.  Yes, funny.

Like I said, the media does not have a sense of humor about itself.  Any portayal of them as a bunch of vultures crushing flowers creating circus will not be tolerated.
