I can't stand these type of movies when the people involved try to push it as documentary’s. Regardless, I am glad Netlfix carries it, not shying away from controversy.

Evan has it exactly right. I have no use for Tim Robbins's politics, but I'm glad NF make his "documentary" available to those who do.

It's not being pushed as a documentary. It's a filmed version of a play.

It's never called a documentary in the LA Times article and the Netflix listing doestn't catagorize it as a documentary (Netflix's categories for it: Independent, Indie Comedies, Spoofs and Satire, Political Comedies)

I read about this when it first came out, I think in the NYtimes, I clearly remember them calling it an "off-beat documentary." Reading the LA Times I suppose that is an odd way of putting it. No matter how they put it, the point remains I am very happy Netflix is making "controversial projects" available. I think that is a more fitting title. :)

Funny

My question is, will Blockbuster carry it? If not, what, oh what, will all those "protesters" do who jumped ship because Netflix has a Wal-Mart banner ad on their site?

Good luck renting this from your new online DVD provider...perhaps you shouldn't have jumped ship so soon?

Look at it this way: all those former Wal-Mart customers will now be able to rent a movie they would *never* be able to get from Wal-Mart, and most likely will not be able to get from Blockbuster.

Tim mentioned Netflix on 'Hardball' tonight. He kept calling it a really small internet company which I found somewhat amusing.

Blockbuster will not carry the movie. Apparently Netflix and Robbins are in bed together with this movie and it's an exclusive deal. And it looks like Tim is trying to help with some cross-promotion. "Trying" is the key word there.

Tim Robbins, aka Mr Susan Saran-wrap is a talentless hack whose hatred for America, not to mention his lack of talent has landed him in the D-list celebrity category. Perhaps the only movie of his that I enjoyed was the one with Martin Lawrence, I can't think of the title right away. I think the movie begins with Lawrence trying to car-jack him, and Tim flooring the gas. Can anyone refresh my memory?

Fuck America!
