You know what you’re getting when you watch a movie like this. It wasn’t spectacular, but it was watchable, enjoyable even, in a Spy Games kind of way. Actually, I think this might have been Spy Games 2.
I haven’t seen it yet, but it appears Sam Mendes has made American Beauty 2 and called it Revolutionary Road, a movie based on a 1961 book of the same name. I’m surprised Lee Siegel got through this entire article without mentioning Mad Men once. While Don Draper doesn’t overtly hate the suburbs, he appears to hate everything they represent.
2009 should be a big year for Revolutionary Road on unlikelywords as I have this post, I’ve got the book to read, and want to see the movie.
