From the Times:
To depict the killing of a sitting world leader, comically or otherwise, is virtually without precedent in major studio movies, film historians say.
One may argue that this is the greatest attack against the U.S. since 9/11, and a huge victory for North Korea and Kim Jong-un, or whoever is responsible.
And it’s a sad day for America. It’s a sad day for the movie business and for freedom of speech, and a sad day for liberty around the globe. The Interview looks to be juvenile and perhaps not very good, but it’s a terrible precedent to cower and relent in the face of this type of attack.
Or look at the glass half full. As Craig Ferguson said many times, “It’s a great day for America, everybody!” Kudos to the Obama administration and Raúl Castro for finally normalizing U.S. – Cuban relations. It’s about time. Talk about a time warp.
