Thank You for Smoking

Emmy says:
For a movie based in dialogue it just flew by, full of wit and philosophy. Great framing pushed the personal aspect and the characters were interesting. This was a lot of fun. 8/10.

Jeff says:
I never realised how much this movie could be useful in a philosophy lesson. Begging the question, straw man arguments, moving the goalposts … everything the lobbyists for the foulest corporations and political vested interests use to fool people into ignoring facts and science. Having said all that, this is a very entertaining film with surprising heart. While some critics objected to the lack of a redemption arc, I think this is more realistic and all the better for it. 9/10.
