Hey, Hollywood, why don’t you consider greenlighting the following. Can’t do any worse that “Body of Lies,” right?
- “End in Sight” – The riveting sequel to “No End in Sight,” the 2007 documentary about the quagmire that once was the Iraq occupation.
- “Stealing America: Acorn Edition” – Ripped from the headlines, this docu-sequel examines the corrosive effect the Acorn nonprofit group had on the 2008 presidential election. Imagine the movie poster – “If you thought every voted counted only once … think again!”
- “Generic Afghanistan War Action Hero” – This pitch is a bit fuzzier. But I’m thinking U.S. forces have been in combat in Afghanistan for seven years, so surely there’s been heroism on display by the troops, right? Heck, I’ll take a German or Canadian war hero. Let’s film it and see if it outgrosses “Redacted.”
