Thank You for Smoking

Aaron Eckhart is a tobacco lobbyist with a silver tongue, skirmishing with crusading politicians, hanging out with his MOD (Merchants of Death) Squad, attempting to bring smoking back into movies, and trying to be a father. His climb up the corporate ladder seems assured until things turn against him and his life falls apart.

I loved this film, it’s the kind of playful contrarian satire that I enjoy. Reitman pokes fun at narcissistic Hollywood moguls, hypocritical politicians, avaricious activists, and the slippery nature of the lobbyist business.

Great stuff.
