'A Face In The Crowd' ...

I'm shaking my head.

Where have I been? Why haven't I heard about this movie until this year?

It's The Andy Griffith Show meets Citizen Kane.

Why did Orson Welles get all the glory? Andy Griffith is great in this film. He's a long way from Andy Taylor.

It's freakishly prophetic.

Hugely powerful.

And a little frightening in its commentary.

See it if you haven't already.

I agree, this is truly one of the most powerful films I've ever seen. I'd never heard of it until a few years ago when somebody showed it at a little group video thing we did called Secret Cinema.

You're right, it's totally prophetic. The main character represents all the hate-spewing nation-diving shock media types like Ann Coulter and Rush Limbaugh.

Oops, meant to say nation-dividing...
