Since our target’s a little lower than projected, Finnbogason’s treble overshadowed ex-Bayern striker Nils Petersen, Jr. was unabashed in its depiction of drugs’ effects Each of the four principal characters suffers brutally for his or her addiction culminating in one character’s psychotic break another’s amputated arm and a third’s descent into prostitution The film’s miserabilist outlook graphic sex and body-horror imagery are as effective an antidrug campaign as exists Artisan Entertainment Fahrenheit 9/11 2004 The 2004 presidential election was ugly to an unprecedented degree with attacks on John Kerry’s service from the right’s Swift Boat Veterans for truth and this documentary-length Molotov cocktail tossed at George W Bush from director Michael Moore Moore who’d previously been booed at the 2003 Oscars for an anti-Bush speech mixed together insinuations about voter fraud in Florida and ties between the Bush and bin Laden families into an antiwar statement In its sheer provocation and palpable anger it was the perfect film for its polarized time; the fact that it was received very differently by audiences of different political persuasions seemed somehow apt Lionsgate The Passion of the Christ 2004 This film depicting the torture and eventual death of Jesus was one of the biggest hits of all time But it hadn’t necessarily had a clear path to acclaim; pre-release the film was pilloried for perceived anti-Semitism As audiences flocked over the weeks preceding Easter some criticized director Mel Gibson for an excessively violent and sadistic vision of Jesus’s death Newmarket Borat 2006 Sacha Baron Cohen’s depiction of a Kazakh immigrant interacting with real people stateside showed America in a terrible light; it was hilarious painful viewing But for months after the film’s release questions over just how fair Borat had been to its participants persisted And Baron Cohen’s career continued to push boundaries of taste with subsequent movies lampooning gay men (Bruno) and Sub-Saharan African heads of state (The Dictator) 20th Century Fox 1 of 14 Advertisement These two excellent bits in the first few minutes make a skeptic wonder: Have Rogen and Goldberg honed their talents to create or smoked enough pot to stumble into a movie that works from start to finish But as always they’re just teasing our expectations only to deflate them The joke barrage becomes hit-or-miss as if the creators including screenwriter Dan Sterling working from a story by Rogen and Greenberg don’t know or care which is which Aaron the Skyline Tonight producer played by Rogen does know that his show isn’t 60 Minutes because a 60 Minutes producer tells him so and sees a chance to do News That Matters when he learns that North Korea’s Shining Star is Skylark’s No 1 fan Yes he would sit for an interview instantly stoking dim Dave’s dream of the greatest confrontation of journalist and potentate since David Frost corralled Richard Nixon “In 10 years Ron Howard’s going to make a movie out of this” he exults mis-recalling the Howard film title as Frosty Nixon All is swell until the CIA in the lissome form of Agent Lacey (Lizzy Caplan from Masters of Sex) adds a wrinkle to Dave and Aaron’s assignment: kill Kim Acting with Franco on and off for half his 32 years since Freaks and Geeks Rogen plays Aaron as a smart underachieving 12-year-old with Franco as his dumb cute friend And say this for Franco: few stars can radiate the joy he does in playing an idiot who happens to be popular Uttering such pearls of sagacity as “This is 2014 women are smart now” Dave is handsome empty TV charisma rampant And the sick thing is that even to a skeptic Franco makes grinning inanity attractive Pushing bromance even further than in other Rogen movies the schlub and the stud exchange hugs kisses and homoerotic endearments “I am Gollum and you’re my Precious” Dave tells Aaron “I will cherish every moment; I will rub your tummy when you get back” this when Aaron has to retrieve a CIA poison canister that he’s obliged to hide in a body part where according to the Senate Torture Report the agency’s interrogators sometimes inserted hummus in their terror suspects Monitoring the pickup from Langley Agent Lacey must be pleased that Aaron more or less voluntarily gives himself a colonic See that proves it’s not torture Read more 3 Reasons People Think North Korea Hacked Sony Amid all the cartoon characterizations the most complex and sympathetic or at least pathetic figure is Kim played with alternating charm and menace by Randall Park (Danny Chung on the most recent season of Veep) Like Dave and Aaron Kim is stuck in horny preadolescence He loves basketball with the hoops lowered so he can dunk and Katy Perry but with the poignancy of a poor little rich boy who must play the adult in his public appearances Meeting Dave gives him a chance to reveal the real Kim not a god but just one of the guys: he pees and poos Dave’s possibly genuine hookup with this man-child might pose a threat to his American BFF except that Aaron’s having a fling with Sook Kim’s most trusted security guard a role to which Diana Bang (Jiao on Bates Motel) also brings more craft and heft to the project than required of the Occidental performers Indeed if the real Kim were to see The Interview he might be flattered by the portraits of the two main North Koreans at least until the last reel of political score-settling war games and Tarantinian stuff blowing up In its parade of ribald gags and infantile preoccupation with body parts not to mention a climactic decapitation water-balloon style The Interview displays all the mindless excesses that repressive regimes condemn in Hollywood movies Which may be Rogen and Goldberg’s point “See here’s what they hate about us And you’re gonna love it” Maybe you will love The Interview if you can ever see the movie as much as some people hate or fear it But if you’re hoping for any cogent

health physician and poet living in Beirut Fouad M Fouad is a Syrian doctor public health researcher and poet also in Beirut We were watching the continuous coverage of the massacres carried out by ISIS killers in Paris who took at least 129 lives and injured hundreds more On full-hour news programs one after another we saw the same video clips the same explosions crowd panic and interviews flowers laid candles lit experts summariesand that poor woman hanging from a window ledge by her fingers Afterwards came stories about the stories Just the day before ISIS wrought carnage in a southern suburb of Beirut in a Shiite neighborhood with suicide bombings in a market adjacent to a mosque Almost 50 civilians died and about 100 were severely injured But in the Western news media the story was barely a blip The Empire State Building the Sydney Opera House and Buckingham Palaceamong other Western iconsall lit up to display the colors of the French flag None displayed the red green and white of the Lebanese flag We asked ourselves why this disparity Its true that like politics all tragedy is local But ISIS is global as is the 24-hour international news coverage Yet it isnt just the commercial news outlets that seem blinkered When the Taliban last year slaughtered 132 children in a Peshawar school how many ordinary Western citizens changed their Facebook profiles to display the Pakistani flag Facebook activated its natural disaster "Safety Check" feature for Paris but not for Beirut even though there are millions of Facebook users all over the Middle East Could it be that in the regard of the West westerners lives count for more Even in death to recall George Orwells paradigm it seems all are equal but some are more equal than others Millions of Syrians have fled the barrel bomb civil war in their country seeking safety Some four million find a shaky haven in Lebanon Turkey and Jordan and five million are displaced within Syria But what pulled at our sentiments The photo of Aylan Kurdi the toddler washed up on a Turkish beach a classic poster-child How frail Western pity is however One of the Paris killers is said to have posed as a refugee entering Greece Suddenly the news is all about razor wire and walls while more than half of US state governors seek to bar any Syrian refugees from their backyards The result of Western mass media orientation is already apparent: a hardening of hatred against Muslims and Arabs a refusal to come to the aid of refugees wherever they wash up and a "declaration of war" that will include airstrikes sure to bring more suffering among civilians and greater radicalization of young men The spiral of violence begets violenceand ISIS is gloating We write this with a certain bitterness Both of us are

“I say to the members of the public who have shown personal concern for my predicament that I will strive with every breath of energy in me to pursue the cause of justice not only for my sake but because it is the right thing to do to make the world a better place and to defend the rights of the down-trodden.
